About Marvin Adcock
Cottonwood Falls, KS
I remember my first appreciation for the power of music struck me on a Sunday evening at age 10 as I watched the Beatles performing "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" on the Ed Sullivan show. The reaction from the audience I witnessed on that small black and white screen was a real eye (and ear) opener for me. Not many years after that I taught myself to play guitar and started writing songs. As I got older it was my love of a good story that morphed me into a country songwriter. I enjoy reading about other writers, and one of the most memorable quotes I ever read was by Johnny Cash who said he used the "KISS" method of writing. An acronym for "Keep It Simple Stupid". I thought that sounded pretty easy, but I was WRONG!!!!. I learned that writing a simple song is one of the hardest tasks for a songwriter. After a lifetime of learning from the best writers in Nashville, and several spiral bound notebooks, I strive to be the best writer I can, and hope I will always continue to improve.
