Songwriting to Heal Soldier's Trauma
Broadcast: May 30, 2021 at 4:00 p.m.
On her 2018 album project, "Rifles & Rosary Beads", singer/songwriter Mary Gauthier shares the stories of American veterans by writing the songs with them.
Gauthier collaborated with the nonprofit "Songwriting With: Soldiers" to co-write the album's 11 tracks with veterans and their families. She talks about how the experience seemed to help the vets to heal their trauma and serve as a humbling inspiration for herself. Two seemingly disparate sides came together to make great art.
