About Buddy Mondlock & Carol Elliott: The SGS introduces its Songwriter Series with Buddy and Carol, known in Nashville as "writer's writers." They are immensely respected within the songwriter community there, but not household names themselves. Their songs have been recorded by dozens of artists like David Wilcox, Joan Baez, Janis Ian, Peter Paul and Mary, Garth Brooks, Nancy Griffith, and they have co-written with some of Nashville's most famous writers. Carol won the Wrangler Award for Best Western Song of the Year from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. This will be a rare chance to hear them perform their hit songs, tell their stories, and present their new and less-known material. They will perform separately and together.
