In January 2012, some of country music’s biggest

stars gathered to bring to life the traditional

American folk songs written by Laura Ingalls

Wilder in her internationally best-selling series

Little House on the Prairie. For the first time

in concert, this music was performed in front of

a rapt, intimate audience at the Loveless Barn in

Nashville, TN, and filmed for broadcast nationwide

on PBS. Pa’s Fiddle: The Music Of America

now comes to CD and DVD with the music of

Randy Travis, Rodney Atkins, Ronnie Milsap,

Committed, Natalie Grant, Ashton Shepherd

Cast of Pa's Fiddle: The Music Of America

and the Roys. Both CD and DVD are available at

iTunes, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Hastings and

theater––The Michigan Theatre. They are seeking

volunteers and anyone who would like to be

Emmy-winning director and producer Sunny

Lake has announced the launch of Songwriter, a

reality TV show for songwriters, with a promotional

video on Kickstarter, the crowdsourcing site.

With Songwriter, Lake would like to do for songwriting

what American Idol has done for singing.

Using Kickstarter, he seeks to raise a minimum of

$50,000. Funds raised will be used to shoot a pilot

for Songwriter: Get Inside the Music at Berklee

College of Music. (Lake is a Berklee alumnus.)

While Berklee students will be a major source of

talent, Lake also plans to hold auditions in New

York City, Nashville, TN and Los Angeles, CA.

In all, 24 songwriters will be chosen by a small

group that will include Lake, music celebrities and

a Berklee professor. Those who pledge funds will

receive special gifts ranging from a Songwriter

download for $15 to a special promotional spotlight

and an all-access pass for four to meet the

cast and crew at a private backstage reception for

a pledge of $10,000. Complete details at http://

kickstarter.com/projects/137389948/songwriterget-inside-the-music-reality-tv.
