Presented by Nashville Convention and Visitor’s Corporation and VML, IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG is derived from 100 hours of interviews with Nashville artists, including Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Kacey Musgraves, and world-famous songwriters: Jessi Alexander “The Climb” for Miley Cyrus), Mac Davis, Mikky Ekko and Claude Kelly (“Grenade” for Bruno Mars, “Circus” for Britney Spears and “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson).

“The goal behind IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG is to offer a deeper look at that creative community and shine a light on the songwriters,” wrote Forbes. “Throughout the film, viewers hear from songwriters and artist/songwriters who share fascinating stories about the creation of some of the greatest songs in music.”

IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG takes a look at the unsung heroes of Nashville – the ones who create the melodies that stick in our heads and write the words that hook into our souls. As a story about of one of music’s most important – and virtually unknown forces: The Nashville songwriter, IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG showcases the ups and downs of songwriting – from the struggles of paying your dues – to the wonderment of putting the words to music that affects millions. Chusy’s documentary uncovers the inspiration behind some of the biggest hits in country, rock and pop, while also paying homage to the greats who built the trunk of the tree that has turned Nashville into the songwriting center of the world. Packed full of raw, stripped-down performances, IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG will give you a new appreciation of how we all connect through songs and why they are more important than ever.

“This documentary takes a fascinating and underappreciated career within the music industry and turns it into an hour and a half exposé. It explores the life, processes, inspirations, failures, and successes of professional songwriters. IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG is wonderfully creative not only in its exploration of the songwriting medium but also in its translation of that onto the big screen. It pushes the audience to re-examine who can be a songwriter, what they believe to be the process behind creating a song, and what is considered to be a song in the first place,” wrote Flip Screened.
