Hutton Hotel in Nashville will host a series of weekend Writers Retreats in July, August and September 2019.

Aspiring songwriters will be able to learn from other writers and sound engineers during each of the three four-day workshops. Guests will spend time in the hotel’s writer studios learning about the creative process, see the sights of Nashville, and leave the weekend with their first recordings. The Writers Retreats will be under the direction Adam Taylor, Technical Production and Writers Studio Manager, who has recorded eight Grammy-nominated albums, and Jill Schmidt, Director of Programming for Analog at Hutton Hotel.

The retreat will host an intimate group of up to four guests for each weekend, each staying in their own one bedroom suite or Executive King room at the iconic hotel. Songwriter Jamie Floyd will host in July and September, and Pete Sallis will host in August.  Sound engineer Sean Sullivan will work with the writers to learn how to lay down tracks in the Studios.

The Writers Retreat package includes accommodations in Hutton Hotel’s Executive King, Midtown One-Bedroom or West End One-Bedroom suites; a food and beverage credit of $250 to use throughout the stay; welcome reception in the Writers Studios; time with a songwriter in the Writers Studios; time with a sound engineer in the Writers Studios; solo time in the hotel’s Writers Studios for writing and brainstorming.  Rates for the Writers Retreats begin at $2,420 plus tax for three nights for an Executive King.

Maren Morris and Zedd recorded their smash hit “The Middle” at the Hutton Hotel’s Writers Studios. Dierks Bentley and Ryan Tedder helped idealize the concept each of the writer’s studios, which opened in 2017.
