Sometimes it’s hard to sum up my upcoming playlist….this is one of those times. I’m feeling very plugged in to all of you these days and therefore, I’m allowing my instincts to guide me in creating the tracks for the lineup this Sunday, September 27. This week’s sneak peek playlist video is from one of my favorite songwriters, Darden Smith. His natural writing process is to let a song be born through every stage and in every sense of the word. The song I chose is “Angel Flight," a co-write between Darden and Radney Foster and a most beautiful collaboration between the two songwriters resulting in the creation of the organization songwritingwithsoldiers.org. Rather than try to sum up the human kindness which encompasses that journey, I encourage you to visit songwritingwithsoldiers.org. Enjoy the video and song, and please join me and the following musicians next Sunday. I’ll save you a seat.
