The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will premiere its 43rd annual Words & Music Night showcase tonight (July 12) at 6 p.m. CT. The event will present a compilation of songs written by students from Tennessee, Texas, Michigan, Florida, Canada and Australia in collaboration with Nashville-based songwriters.
Hosted by Aaron Helvig, the museum’s Words & Music Program Senior Manager, students will introduce themselves and their professional songwriting partners, who will perform the song they wrote together. Throughout the evening, artists such as Priscilla Block, Ashland Craft, Walker Hayes, Miko Marks, John Osborne, Lily Rose, Tenille Townes and Hailey Whitters, will share words of wisdom and encouragement for aspiring songwriters.
Designed for grades 3-12, Words & Music allows students to tell their stories by writing original song lyrics, while developing language arts skills. Through the program, students interact with a professional songwriter in a performance workshop that transforms students’ lyrics into finished songs. More than 150,000 students have participated in the Words & Music program since its inception in 1979.
Words & Music Night will be available for on-demand viewing on the museum’s website.
