On Friday, October 12, Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business students were wowed and inspired by Grammy Award winning songwriter/producer Dan Wilson as he discussed and demonstrated the process by which he arrived at songs like “Closing Time” (Wilson’s band Semisonic), “Not Ready to Make Nice” (co-written with Dixie Chicks) and “Someone Like You” (co-written with Adele). The Johnson Theater was standing room only for this special event. Wilson has collaborated with artists including Adele, Pink, Chris Stapleton, Carole King, Dierks Bentley, Dixie Chicks, Halsey, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Mike Posner, Leon Bridges, and many others.
