The Workshop is for aspiring singers, songwriters, musicians, and anyone who loves gospel or country music.

This unique workshop, held in an intimate setting, will teach you the process of songwriting, as well as how to market yourself, how to market your songs, and how to find and work with an agent.

Find out firsthand how Gatlin started in the business as a kid and ended up beating Roy Orbison in a talent show. He went on to write songs for many performers including Elvis.

It will be a night to remember!
