The Nashville 24

Twenty four songs ... in twenty four hours.

Saturday, October 23, 2021: a group of songwriters spent 24 continuous hours writing together, with an optional challenge of finishing 24 songs within the 24 hours. This was unprecedented, held on a stock farm north of Nashville, and open to applications from around the world. Co-sponsored by Jeffrey Joslin and Jon Pattie, the event was a success and discussions are underway to develop the blueprint further and hold a same-named retreat in future years. Meanwhile, the original first year event's planning and materials are below:
