American Songwriter: Behind the Song

Founded in 1984 as a print magazine, American Songwriter has evolved to become a provider of digital content including videos, web features, and a podcast network. The Behind the Song feature on the website is freely available to subscribers and non-subscribers alike, and presents digital stories with interviews and video performances of famous songs such as "Little Lies," by Fleetwood Mac, "He Stopped Loving Her Today," by George Jones, or "Carolina In My Mind," by James Taylor. Each post in the featured series includes explanatory text, images, and original performances or cover versions of the song. Other features of American Songwriter include Songwriter U, which has opportunities for songwriters to learn about topics such as "Coaching," "Getting Paid," "Legal Corner," and "Marketing" (which can be found under a drop-down menu at the top of the page). In the menu bar, visitors looking to share their work can find song and lyric "Contests." Finally, visitors should check out the Features drop-down menu for news, interviews, and reviews, as well as videos such as a recent performance of "River" by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste at the 2021 Emmy Awards.
