Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum hosts 33rd annual Words & Music Night
The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum hosted its 33rd annual Words & Music Night on Tuesday (4/24). Diamond Rio hosted the event during which Nashville-area students performed their original songs accompanied by professional songwriters. Words & Music Night is the culmination of the year-long Words & Music program where students learn about the lyric-writing process and write or co-write lyrics in the classroom; the lyrics are then given to professional songwriters, who refine their lyrics and add melodies.
