Ken Gaines, one of Texas' top songwriters and performers, will give a 1-hour Master Class of Mercer's songs and a brief history of his substantial influence on popular music in the 20th century and beyond. Johnny Mercer was America's most popular and successful songwriters of the twentieth century. Between 1929 and 1976 Mercer penned lyrics to more than 1,000 songs, received nineteen Academy Award nominations, wrote music for many Broadway shows, and cofounded Capitol Records. Perhaps best known for the 1961 Academy Award–winning song «Moon River,» Mercer also took Oscars for «Days of Wine and Roses,» «In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening,» and «On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe.»
