Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell proclaimed October 22-28 “Celebrating Songwriters Week” here in Music City. Already scheduled are the ASCAP Awards (we’re not winning any this year — maybe next?) and the NSF/NSAI Awards.
But what really counts, I think, is how we each celebrate songwriters individually, in our own lives. For example, I’m plan to:
- up my alcohol intake by at least 20% — still not hit songwriter quantities, I know, but it’s my own tribute
- start a fight in at least one of my close relationships — for the inspiration, of course
- sleep in and flake out on at least one appointment during the week — extra credit if it’s a co-writing appointment
Oh yeah, and write at least one song.
How will you celebrate?
