You’ll be staying in five-star tented suites, eating gourmet food cooked by a private chef, taking a safari every day and then coming back to learn about songwriting and play music with two hit Nashville songwriters.

Danny Flowers may be best known for having penned classic hits for other artists, but as a solo artist his bluesy blend of raw emotion combined with a heartfelt yearning will speak to your very soul. His writing credits span several genres and his flexibility as a guitarist and wordsmith is well-known. He penned “Tulsa Time” for Eric Clapton, which Don Williams also cut. Williams then had hits with “Back In My Younger Days,” “Senorita,” and “To Be Your Man.” Emmylou Harris recorded “Before Believing” as the title cut for her “Pieces of the Sky” album. “Gulf Coast Highway” was recorded by Emmylou and Willie Nelson as well as by Nanci Griffith and Evangeline. The list goes on.




Gordon Kennedy won a Grammy Award for his song “Change The World” which he co-wrote with Wayne Kirkpatrick and Tommy Sims. He’s also a Grammy award winning producer for best pop instrumental album for Peter Frampton’s “Fingerprints.” Gordon has had cuts with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley & Stevie Nicks, Garth Brooks, Bruce Hornsby, Ricky Skaggs, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Peter Frampton, among many others. Some of the films where you can hear his songs are: “The Fox and the Hound II,” “Almost Famous,” “Phenomenon,” “The Banger Sisters,” “For Love of the Game,” “Tin Cup” and “Where the Heart is.”
