Songwriting To Heal Soldiers' Trauma

Airs Monday, November 11, 2019, at 10 p.m. On her 2019 album project, "Rifles & Rosary Beads", singer/songwriter Mary Gauthier shares the stories of American veterans by writing the songs with them. Gauthier collaborated with the nonprofit "Songwriting With: Soldiers" to co-write the album's 11 tracks with veterans and their families. She talks about how the experience seemed to help the vets to heal their trauma and serve as a humbling inspiration for herself.  Two seemingly disparate sides came together to make great art. Paul Ingles hosts.
