Songs In Progress - Episode 4

After completing a songwriting bootcamp with a #1 songwriter and coach it was like, ...drop everything and start writing more new songs! [What? Me focus?!] lol

Here's one with a simple demo I put together to see how I like it later - maybe get some feedback on it.

How it came about:

1. During our group songwriting coaching call, a now-award-winning artist named Chris Stapleton was mentioned. So I went and listened to his latest album.
2. One day, I took his song "Whiskey And You", set the lyrics in front of me, and decided to use it as template for a new song. At this point, it was just about "practice" songwriting.
3. I look through my list of title ideas and simply matched syllables with Chris' song title. I decided on "My Happy Place". (Counted on my fingers 1-2-3-4 - THAT I can do!)
4. Lo and behold, because I "showed up" for work, inspiration starting showing up as well, and the song lyric was on it's way!

Ps. Those that know me at all are probably not surprised in the least that I wrote this particular song!

    Very nice, I can picture this in my mind. Reminds me of my days coming home after being out working cases.
