[Diann’s Take] In September 2016 I was invited to attend the GSC Focus Event along with other GSC members. The event is an incredible opportunity to spend a weekend co-writing with industry pro writers, meeting with publishers who provide feedback on your songs, and learning about the music business. Each morning we met with a different pro write right after breakfast from 9:00 a.m. to noon with the goal of co-writing a complete song.”Caffeine” is the song produced during my session with pro writer Steve Dean and my peer, Nancy Moser. It started with just the title and took off from there. Steve Dean has co-written eight number one hits, including the most played song on Country Radio in 2007, “Watching You” for Rodney Atkins. Many thanks to Steve Dean for sharing his years of experience with us and producing the demo for our song. My cup of coffee is forever changed!
