WSM Partners With ASCAP For New Show

Beginning Wednesday (10/31), 650 AM WSM/Nashville will premiere The ASCAP Songwriters Show,” an exclusive weekly songwriter show in partnership with ASCAP . The program will air Wednesdays from 2-3 pm and spotlight a different ASCAP songwriter each week. The writers will talk about the stories behind their hit songs, play live in the studio, and feature new songs currently being pitched to some of the biggest artists in music today.

“More than possibly any other radio station in America, 650 AM WSM understands that it all begins with a songwriter,” says WSM General Manager Tom English. “After all, the phrase ‘Music City USA’ was coined on our airwaves, and we are thrilled to partner with ASCAP and Regions Bank to provide this one-of-a-kind showcase of incredible Nashville talent on our one-of-a-kind radio station.”

“Regions Bank is delighted and honored to sponsor The ASCAP Songwriters Show on the legendary 650 AM WSM,” says Regions Senior Vice-President Lisa Harless. “Regions remains committed to the songwriting community and is excited that many of Nashville’s top songwriters will be showcased on WSM.”

ASCAP’s LeAnn Phelan added “ASCAP Nashville is home to some of the greatest songwriters in the world and thanks to this partnership with WSM and Regions Bank, the WSM listeners will get to experience their talents first hand.”

ASCAP Songwriter Ben Hayslip (“Gimmie That Girl,” “Long, Slow Kisses,” “Put A Girl In It,” and “All About Tonight”) will be joined by publisher Rusty Gaston (This Music/Warner Chappell) for the premiere. Additional ASCAP songwriters confirmed for upcoming shows include Dave Turnbull, Odie Blackmon, Jeff Allen, Hannah Dasher, Josh Osborn, Trevor Rosen, James LeBlanc and Lynn Hutton.
