If you have a teenage child who is musically talented in some way — such as if they are a singer, a guitarist, or both — then it might be worth it to work with a clean country music songwriter, particularly if it's country music that they have an interest in. It's worth it to work with one of these professionals for these reasons and more.
Costs Might Not Be as High as You Think
Because of all of the hard work that songwriters put into writing great songs, you might assume that you will have to pay a songwriter a lot of money to write one or more songs for your teen. However, if you find a songwriter who is just starting out — much like your teen might be — then you might find that they will do great work and will charge affordable rates. Also, some songwriters don't charge up-front fees at all; instead, if the songwriter thinks that your teen is talented, they might be willing to share the rights to the song and charge your teen royalties later, once their music starts getting played on the radio or once it otherwise starts making money. Of course, it is very important for you and your teen to talk with the songwriter about all of these things and to hire an attorney to write or look over the contract for you to ensure that your teen is protected and to be sure that you know how much your family is paying for the songwriter's work.
You Can Encourage Your Teen's Talent
As a parent who might be really proud of your teen, you may want to do everything that you can to encourage their talent. If you hire a songwriter, you will be showing that you want to help your teen be successful musically. Additionally, the songwriter can help with writing a song that is suitable for your teen's voice or other musical talents, which can help your teen succeed more than ever.
You Can Ensure the Content Is Age-Appropriate
One thing that you might be concerned about when it comes to having a musically talented teen is whether or not they will be exposed to things that are not age-appropriate as they are attempting to break into the music industry. This is a valid concern, but if you work with a songwriter who is known for writing "clean" songs, then you can ensure the content of the songs is age-appropriate for your teen. Plus, you can help ensure that the song is suitable for your teen to sing at school talent shows or in other venues around younger audiences
