“Never Yours”: a new song from Anna Waggoner


“Never Yours” is the most recent release from MTSU singer-songwriter, Anna Waggoner. After writing the song on piano in just a few hours, she originally imagined the finished recording as a stripped down, piano/vocal version. However, with the help of MTSU producer Matt “Maccabee” Drozd, who recorded and produced the song, the final recording of “Never Yours” is even more breathtaking than Anna could’ve dreamed when she wrote it. Maccabee’s suggestion to add multiple instrumental layers to the track made it sound fuller, which juxtaposed the emptiness of the song’s emotion.

Anna wrote the song and performed all piano, guitar, and vocal parts on the track. MTSU RIM student Garret Rounsavall plays bass on the track, and MTSU Film student Matt Do took the Cover photo. The song is now on SoundCloud, and will also be on the upcoming EP release from MTSU’s Recording Industry Fraternity, Omega Delta Psi. Anna feels blessed to have collaborated with such talented people, and she hopes you love the track as much as she does.

Anna Waggoner: “Lips of a Stranger”

Nashville based singer-songwriter and MTSU Recording Industry student Anna Waggoner wrote her first song when she was 10 years old, and has been in love with songwriting ever since. Her songs span multiple genres, and she cites her main influences as James Taylor, Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, and Taylor Swift. Playing guitar, piano, ukulele, harmonica, and self-recording most of her songs, Anna is a musician as well as a wordsmith. Lyrics are usually her favorite part of a song, and she tries to write lyrics that are introspective and cognizant of the human condition.


Anna keeps God at the core of everything she does, and she feels her purpose in life is to inspire others. She hopes that as you listen to her music, you will be comforted, encouraged, and inspired.
