The Women’s Music Business Association will host the WMBA Consignment Boutique Fundraiser on Friday, May 10 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at ASCAP (2 Music Square West). The boutique is the nonprofit organization’s primary fundraiser for the year to support its membership programs.
Items for sale will include clothing of all sizes for men, women and children, along with accessories, all priced from $1 to $20. Several Nashville food trucks, including Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, will be present during the day.
WMBA president Trina Lloyd-Weidner says, “As our organization continues to expand, the costs associated with running it increases as well. This one-day boutique will allow the entire Nashville community to get involved with the WMBA while scoring some items for themselves. We’re looking really forward to educating those outside of the music community about the WMBA and giving them an opportunity to build a new, affordable wardrobe, as well. Funds raised from the event will allow us to maintain low annual dues for our membership and to give more to Middle Tennessee’s charitable organizations.”

Dallas-based singer-songwriter Amy Bowen is suing country singers Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood over their 2011 hit “Remind Me,” reports the Nashville City Paper. At one time, Bowen lived in Nashville, performing under the name Lizza Connor. She claims she penned “Remind Me” in 2007, and that the 2011 release ripped off her composition.
According to court documents, Bowen’s song “Remind Me” was copyrighted in 2008. Bowen claims she performed the song publicly 19 times — including a performance during a workshop where songwriters Kelley Lovelace and Chris Dubois were in attendance. Lovelace and Dubois were listed as co-writers with Paisley on “Remind Me.” The suit asks for proceeds in excess of $10 million from the song.
