If you've ever attended one of Artist And's intimate songwriters retreats, with Nashville songwriters Christa Wells & Nicole Witt, you know that you leave with more than new songs in your pocket.


As one of our artists, you'll go home with new and lasting friendships; potential future collaborators and cheerleaders; the soul satisfaction of knowing you were seen and heard; feedback on your work; increased confidence in your gifts, inspiration to keep going, and a better understanding of what makes the difference between a good song and a great one. Our retreats are intimate, so you get the real connection you've been craving and are free to ask all those questions you've been carrying around. 

We are thrilled to announce our 2022 Songwriters Retreat, Sept 22-25,

in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, "Hit Recording Capital of the World."

Earlybird registration starts now and runs through May 4.

By registering early, you'll have a good chance of getting the room of your choice

AND you'll receive a free 30-min private coaching/song feedback session

with Christa and Nicole.


Come with us. Collaborate and connect.

Your best work is yet to come.

We are providing two beautiful historic homes for your stay in Sheffield/Muscle Shoals, Alabama. We will also share meals, gather, cowrite and share songs in the larger home. Weather permitting, we'll make excellent use of the porches, too!


Guests may choose to share a room with another songwriter (each songwriter will pay their own Retreat ticket cost) or with a non-participating friend (friend will pay a $180 meal cost).

See Room options below.



All meals will be provided and are included in the Retreat cost. If you have a food allergy, please make us aware as soon as possible, so the menu can be planned according to your needs.


Room costs are listed below (prices shown are for the entire weekend). Retreat Ticket cost is $745.

We encourage you to bring a songwriter friend and share a room.

To determine your total cost, add the cost of your Room + Retreat Ticket. 

Payment will be due in two equal installments (May 15 & July 15) .


So are we! Go ahead and sign up while there's space.
