The Music Business Association (Music Biz) will honor pop singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor with the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Music Biz 2015 Awards Luncheon on May 14 at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel in Nashville.
Prior to achieving success with her album Title, and its singles “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Movin,” Trainor came to Nashville after scoring a publishing deal at the age of 17. While there, she co-wrote tracks for major acts such as Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes before breaking through on her own after deciding to record “All About That Bass” herself.
“Many people think Meghan was an overnight success, but she has actually been working in the music business for several years, a lot of that time in Nashville,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “Now, we’re thrilled to recognize her incredible talent in the city where her songwriting kicked into high gear.”
Music Biz 2015 will be held in Nashville for the first time on May 12-14. The event allows the industry’s commerce and content sectors a place to network with trading partners, learn about new trends and products impacting the business, and to network with new companies.
