The Opelika Songwriters Festival was founded by Ron and Jen Slocumb, members of local band Martha’s Trouble and owners of The Sound Wall in Opelika. The festival is a co-production of the Sound Wall and Russell Carter Artist Management (RCAM). RCAM has co-produced the 30A Songwriters Festival in Northwest Florida for the past 11 years.
