In this workshop we will be taking a look under the hood of the current Top 5 Country Hits that are blazing over the airwaves. We will look at the most recently charts to see what songs are the biggest around.

In this 2 hour workshop we will listen to the songs, and analyze the song structure, and craft that goes into writing current hits. If you are a songwriter that is looking to get a publishing deal, or want to have artists cut your songs, this is your competition. Even if you are writing songs for fun, learning how to use these songs for tips is a very powerful tool.

Join us online as we break apart each song to see:

  • Song Structure
  • Melodic Phrasing
  • Rhyme Schemes
  • Lyric Types
  • Phrasing, and more!

Join us for lots of listening, discussing, and learning! We welcome songwriters of all skill levels, genres, and goals. We are a supportive group of songwriters that love to educate about the craft of songwriting.

Also, you don't even have to be from MN! All are welcome

MN Association of Songwriters is a non-profit organization based in Minnesota that has a mission to promote the craft of songwriting. We welcome songwriters of all genres, and experience levels to join us. We would love to meet you. Please make plans to attend, and check out our monthly workshops.
