Songwriter Caitlyn Smith Teams With Amtrak For Songwriting Documentary

Songwriter Caitlyn Smith and Amtrak partnered for a six-day, cross-country train trip journey last week, which took five songwriters and a film crew from Memphis, Tennessee, to Tacoma, Washington. The project entitled #allthewaytoTacoma documents songwriting sessions and performances on the train and will be released in documentary format by Wilder Media to support Smith’s forthcoming album. Release dates for the film and the album have not yet been announced.

The album includes the song “Tacoma,” which in addition to inspiring the trip, also appeared on Garth Brooks’ 2014 release Man Against Machine. Keep up with the crew’s road adventures by searching #allthewaytoTacoma on social media platforms.
