Have you ever wanted to go to Africa on a safari? Learn more about songwriting in a fun, natural, exotic setting? Now you can do both. From April 24-30, 2019, Gary and Georgia will be conducting a master songwriting workshop over the course of five days under the beautiful skies of South Africa. 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.

But there’s only room for 6 participants…so sign up now!
