Songwriter to Songwriter: Dawn Kenney

David Morris took the opportunity of IBMA week in Nashville to conduct this interview with Dawn Kenney, whose song Sing Me Home will be performed at Carnegie Hall in November.

That song is the title track of her recently-released album, and she talks with David about how it was born of her family’s frustration watching her beloved grandmother succumb to Alzheimer’s Disease.

    I had the pleasure of participating in a Songwriter Circle with Dawn at last year’s WOB. She’s a great songwriter and an awesome performer, too!
