Middle Tennessee State University has teamed with Sony/ATV for ‘All Access,’ which allows students to submit two of their songs to Sony/ATV’s creative team. The creative team then selects students to perform two additional songs during a live showcase.
The opportunity is open to both singers and songwriters. Songwriters must submit original compositions, while singers can send a song written by another writer, or a cover of a song that has not been a radio single. All genres of music are welcome. The partnership will continue through the Spring 2015 semester.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Honor Society was treated to a cocktail reception at the home of museum board member and Vector Management co-president Ken Levitan and wife Gloria Dumas. Vince Gill performed an acoustic set, ending the performance with “What You Give Away.”
