Belmont University To Honor Mike Curb

Mike Curb

Belmont University’s College of Entertainment and Music Business will salute its benefactor and namesake Mike Curb during the annual Best of the Best showcase on April 14.

The event will honor Curb with the 2012 Robert E. Mulloy Award of Excellence, for his nearly five decades of success as a songwriter, producer and record company owner. In addition to his musical accomplishments, he serves as the chair of his Mike Curb Family Foundation which has made contributions to the greater Nashville community including The Curb Pediatric Center at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, The Curb Theater at the downtown library, the Nashville Alliance for Public Education, and the Nashville Symphony. It was through the foundation Curb backed the construction of the Curb Event Center and contributed to Belmont’s studio facilities, including Historic RCA Studio B and the newly renovated Quonset Hut.

Belmont’s free Best of the Best showcase features compilations of student winners from the yearly Showcase Series, including Urban/Pop (Tre Houston), Christian (Haley Hamilton), Country (Tristen Smith), and Rock (Christopher Wild). Winners from the ASCAP Writers Night series will also perform.
