SESAC’s Shannan Hatch Featured on StyleBluePrint

SESAC’s Shannan Hatch, named one of MusicRow‘s Rising Women on the Row honorees in 2012, was recently featured as one of StyleBluePrint’s FACES of Nashville.

“My favorite part is helping songwriters get to the next level, which is also the most challenging!” Hatch said of her favorite part of working in the music business. “I also get to work with and help some of my closest friends … my extended family, which is amazing! My husband Rob was SESAC songwriter of the year last year, and I got to present him with the writer of the year award … a night we will never forget!”
