For four decades, Alice Randall has devoted her creative energy into writing songs for some of the biggest names in country music.

She is the first Black woman to write a number one country song, a professor and writer-in-residence at Vanderbilt University - and a bestselling author.

In April, she released her newest book, “My Black Country” - which she describes as her “Love Letter To Black Country Music And The ‘First Family’ Of Black Country.”

This celebration of Black artistry comes with a soundtrack – a compilation of Alice’s songs, reimagined by Black country artists who are pushing the boundaries today on Music Row in Nashville and beyond.

Alice Randall is the next guest on “The A List with Alison Lebovitz” - this Thursday at 8:30 PM on our public media partner WTCI PBS.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
