The Jimmie Rodgers festivities kicked off earlier last week with Songwriters Night at the Temple Theater.
The event focused on the Heart Behind the Music featuring Mac McAnally, Teddy Gentry, and Lenny Leblanc. We caught up with the trio as they were preparing to rehearse for their performance. They told us like everything, songwriting is a skill you develop through watching others do it.
"It's life that goes in and life that goes out," McAnally said. "And it's really the same as anything else. My grandmother made unbelievably good biscuits and her life went into it. She did it for 80 years. Hopefully, I've lead a good life and that comes out."
