About The Film
We hum their melodies. We know their words by heart. And their music becomes the soundtrack to our lives. Yet, few of us even know their names. It All Begins with a Song tells the story of one of the most important and unknown forces in music: The Nashville Songwriter.
From struggle to success, regret to redemption, this film tells the stories of the lyrical geniuses behind some of the world’s most beloved songs and the musical place they call home.
