Songwriters are modern-day bards who serve as historians and preservers of the oral tradition of our culture. Songs reflect and influence what humans consider important: ideas, feelings, and stories, often using poetic imagery. What do women songwriters and singers have to tell us? We'll talk about Loretta Lynn, Shania Twain, Kacey Musgraves, Joni Mitchell, Brandi Carlisle, and Nanci Griffith.
