I love to write songs. I started writing songs to play at coffee shops. I want to write songs that make people laugh, cry, dance, or pause and think about the lyrics. I want to write the very best songs that I can write. I am an NSAI member and I want to keep working on getting better at writing songs. I have been nominated by NSAI as a Songwriter to Watch and have won the Walnut Valley Songwriting contest. You can check out more of my songs on my website-jimmccarter.com.
