About Songpreneurs

Songwriter entrepreneurs


Songpreneurs are innovators.


We started out back in 2010 as a place to help songwriters figure out how to make real progress in the music industry.


Founder Amanda Colleen Williams had been writing for major publishers in Nashville for almost ten years, and had realized that the industry had changed - and that it was time to adapt.


Napster had blown the lid off the traditional music business's way of making money, but songwriters were largely trying to go about business as usual, sticking their heads in the sand or worse.

Writers were losing their staff writing deals, and were leaving town by the hundreds headed back home to seek stable jobs and other ways of making a living.

So instead of quitting, or accepting another dead end publishing deal making less and less money every year, Amanda put together a team of entrepreneurs and built the Music Publishing Company called Hillbilly Culture LLC.


We launched the first website back in December of 2010 under the name "Hillbilly Culture Club" and without advertising or soliciting, songwriters from all over the world started signing up to receive the individualized help offered by our innovative team.

Others soon followed, and by 2012 there were several new songwriter help sites available to allow songwriters access to the resources of Nashville based groups. 


This was all part of the plan, and helped to fulfill the mission of bringing quality songwriter education to aspiring songwriters around the world, and to bring an educated, motivated group of songwriters into the new millennium of music business.


We have been hunkered down doing the work.


Now, after more than a decade of working closely with small seed groups of songwriter entrepreneurs, helping them to develop their original artistry on their own terms, and providing them with the highest quality innovative services, we have re-launched the website to benefit an even greater number of people.

Because we have worked so closely with real songwriters like you, not only those who are just starting out, but also Grammy award winners and career professionals, we have been able to develop a proprietary system that pushes every songwriter to his or her personal measure of mastery and excellence.

Whether your goal is to write a song on a #1 Chart, or to simply finish a song, we have resources available to help you.

We care about you, because we believe that songwriting is one of the most important activities a person can do.  It's not only a way to make a living, or just some extra income - it's a way to communicate, to improve your mental and emotional health, and to share your knowledge and unique perspective with others.


Need help?  Want to be part of a growing community of skilled professionals working toward the same goals of sustainability and true innovation in the field of songwriting artistry?  Apply to join us today, sign up for an event, or pick up some of our articles or workbooks and get started making real progress toward your songwriting and music business future.

Get to work on the real goal - to create a sustainable career for yourself in the new millennium of music business while serving your community and family using your unique artistry. 


We can help.

Dear Amanda, I want to send a short note to thank you for your incredible efforts over the past two years to help the State Department design and launch a special Arts Envoy program on intellectual property rights.  This first-of-its-kind initiative leverages the power of American artists like yourself to bring awareness to the importance of artists’ rights in critical global markets and to influence and inform policy makers and other key contacts.  It was one of the highlights of my time as director of the Cultural Programs Division and a fantastic example of cultural diplomacy in action.

Amanda Williams has a way with words and music that simply invites audiences in to listen. As a arts envoy with the U.S. State Department, Amanda took the static and sometimes boring world of copyright rules and issues and made it interactive, engaging and relatable. From the average person in a public lecture to the creative but uncertain makers of music, poetry and the written word, Amanda wove legal terms and emotion inspired lyrics and prose into a tapestry of intellectual property fundamentals that no consumer or creator will forget to apply. Easy to work with, listen to and discuss the serious business of copyright, Amanda is prepared and purposeful in her delivery. Our program success was easy to achieve from the start with a speaker of Amanda’s caliber.

I've written on my own for decades, but knew nothing of the protocol of cowriting. At the Songpreneurs Write Brain workshop, after just 30 minutes of instruction from Amanda, I sat down with two complete strangers, and in two hours we turned out one of the catchier, more commercial tunes to which I've ever attached my name.

As a songwriter starting out, with no way of knowing what to do or how to get there, I’d have tuned into this in a heartbeat


Peter Roselli, President Bluewater Music Services Corp.

I highly recommend the Songwriting and Music Business Conference to any up-and-coming songwriter, publisher, performing artist or music business young professional. Amanda Williams is a captivating teacher with years of experience. She knows the ins and outs of the music business, from publishing and copyright to the art of songwriting and performing. I would strongly consider sending future new hires to this conference for a crash course in the various aspects of the music business. A conference that is both entertaining and thought-provoking – don’t miss the next one!


Taylor Lewis, Texas Country Soul "New Normal"

Thank God I have the love and support of my family. I wouldn’t even know where to begin if it wasn’t for my mentor at Songpreneurs, Amanda Colleen Williams.. She and the team taught me everything I know about building a strong and sustainable music business career.
