When I was in Nashville I got to hear some songwriters. Pros. Write hits. And they all collaborate. Very interesting. Talked to them about it. Has got me thinking.
One of them said, "People always ask me if it frustrates me that I gave away half the rights to these big hits. Not really. The songs are better because of the cowriters."
That doesn't come naturally for me, but on this trip I've had the chance to work with two people.
