Capitol Records Nashville won the tournament, and CAA led the drive by donating more than 680 pounds of food, all to support Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Other music industry companies represented were APA, CMT, EMI Publishing, Flood Bumstead McCready & McCarthy, Paradigm, SESAC, Sony Music, Universal Music Group, WME, and Warner Music Nashville.

SOLID will donate the approximate $2,000 from team entry fees for the event to St. Jude.


Thompson Square and Santa on the CSX Charity Train

Husband/wife duo Thompson Square joined Santa and over 100 volunteers for the 69th Annual CSX Santa Train toy giveaway this past Saturday (11/19) handing out over 15 tons of toys.

The CSX train traveled 110 miles through the Appalachian towns in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee spreading toys to children and families in association with Kids Wish Network, Food City, and the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce.

The giveaway train pulled into the Kingsport, TN station where Thompson Square officially kicked off the holiday season in the Tri-Cities area with a charity concert.
