Corene Lackey

Chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association
Our members meet once per month to play and discuss our new songs and have a short lesson on Songwriting Basics.  Our songwriters are involved in several public performances.  We play every Friday night from 6-8 pm at the Raspberry Bakery in Sylacauga. We also play at Cheaha State Park, and other venues.  About three times each year we host a Songwriters Showcase at the Weogufka Center.
In other exiting news, our group has been invited to be WKGA Kowaliga Country Radio (97.5 FM)  in Alexander City. To hear our songwriters on radio, tune into Kowaliga Country Radio 97.5 FM on Thursdays at 4:00 pm and listen for a program called "Hometown Sounds".  You can also listen via the internet  at www.wkga975.com
