Our ‘STORIES BEHIND THE HITS’ show will captivate your audience. Our songwriters perform a Bluebird Cafe/ Listening Room style show (made popular on ‘Nashville.’) They take it up a notch by interacting with the audience and answering questions about songwriting, success, and the music industry. As you know, everyone who comes to Nashville wants to visit the famous Bluebird Cafe and every show is quickly sold out. We can bring the Bluebird experience to you at your venue. The event concludes with a Meet and Greet, chatting, posing for pictures, and signing CDs. Our songwriters will make everyone in your group feel thrilled and grateful they came.



Our tremendous ‘WRITE A SONG WITH A #1 SONGWRITER – TEAM BUILDING’ program will definitely help you to achieve your goals. Everyone has a song in their heart and James Dean Hicks and his award-winning team are extremely effective in helping each employee or group member to discover his or her own creative spark and dedication to the overall team. He understands how to blend people together and bring out the best in them. James inspires everyone to rise to new levels of creativity, consistently surprising themselves in the process. He subtly motivates people to apply a strong work ethic and accomplish more than they thought possible. We even help you pick out props to match the song and even encourage those who want, work out a few simple dance steps!



Songs From The Heart Events also offers a big production music performance from James Dean Hicks and Friends, with a comedic twist, entitled ‘LEGENDS, LYRICS, AND LAUGHTER.’ A world-class comedian can MC you’re event, perform an opening comedic set, and also interact with the songwriters during their show. This is one amazing show!



James Dean Hicks is also a motivational KEYNOTE SPEAKER on the topics of: ‘The Art of Collaboration,’ and ‘The Sound of Success’ and he speaks from his unique perspective and lifelong experience. As a hit songwriter, he starts each day with a blank sheet of paper but by the end of each day, he often creates a work that can live in our hearts for all time. He draws parallels between his life in the music business and your company and the triumphs and struggles that all companies go through on their way to success.
