This is a film about one of the most important unknown forces in music: The Nashville Songwriter.
We all hum their tunes. We know their words by heart. And we tell the story of our own lives through their art. Yet, few of us know their names. This is a film about one of the most important and unknown, forces in music: The Nashville Songwriter. We will tell their story in a way it has never been told. We will document their struggles. From paying their dues to working through their creative process. We will celebrate their success. From the eureka moment of uncovering that musical gem that turns into a hit to receiving a Grammy and hearing how their words and music change people’s lives. But most of all, we pay tribute to the most valuable resource in the music industry today.
“In Nashville, everybody wants to categorize you as either an ‘artist’ or a ‘writer,’” says Jessi Alexander, “but there was never a distinction for me.” The CMA and ACM Song of the Year winner’s extraordinary new album, ‘Decatur County Red,’ is proof of that. The songs here reflect a lifetime spent obsessing over southern rock and classic country, showcasing the melodic instincts that have garnered her multiple #1’s while at the same time stretching her sound beyond the mainstream pop hits she’s written for the likes of Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus, Lee Brice, Tim McGraw, Celine Dion, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Trisha Yearwood, and Ashley Monroe among others. “A lot of people like to argue what is and isn’t country music,” says Alexander, “but I think it’s pretty simple. Be real, be raw. That’s country music to me.” With ‘Decatur County Red,’ Jessi Alexander is as country as it gets.
