Is Taylor Swift as Good as Joni Mitchell? The Nashville songwriter says yes

In Nashville, it seems like everyone sings, or everyone writes songs, or everyone strums a guitar.

When we moved into our house in Thompson’s Station, my wife Nancy and I heard that the guy who lives around the corner is a songwriter. The couple in the house behind us work for Lady A. My first dinner in Nashville was at Puckett’s, and my waiter was a kid trying to make it as a singer/songwriter.

When people in California ask me about Nashville, I say that everyone seems to dream about music.

I recently exchanged letters with Larry McClain, 70, who lives in Old Hickory. He retired in 2020 from a job as an advertising/public relations writer.

His letter is about how he plans to spend his years unrestrained writing music.

And that makes you happy.

“I want to be the oldest guy on the Grammys stage,” McClain said.
