    Songwriters' Hall of Fame (Carrie connection)

    Among the new writers announced for induction into the Nashville Songwriters' Hall of Fame are two with Carrie connections

    1. Tom Douglas co-wrote "Forever Changed" - which I think was one of the most mature and sensitive songs on BA, and a good illustration of the "new level" which she was aiming for with that varied and innovative album.

    Among Tom's many other distinguished songs was Miranda's "The House That Built Me", also a "life passage" song concerned with the the themes of time and memories.

    2. Gretchen Peters, who usually writes alone, and issues her own albums. She wrote "Independence Day", a classic example of the abuse and reaction tradition which has been a prominent feature of female Country songs in the current era. Carrie also recorded "Independence Day" as the Country component to accompany her post-American Idol single "Inside Your Heaven"

    Among Gretchen's many perceptive songs, a particular favourite of mine is "On A Bus To St Cloud", a haunting song about the reaction to a suicide, recorded by Trisha Yearwood.
