The Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and Country Music Television (CMT) announced Derek Toomey and Jeff Silver have been awarded the grand prize in the 15th Annual Song Contest presented by CMT for their title “Drink It In.”
Industry panelists selected 10 finalists from 2,000+ entries for public voting on nsai.cmt.com throughout February 2015. The top prize receives a mentoring session with Warner Music Nashville recording artist Charlie Worsham, a one-year single song contract with Little Louder Music Publishing, publishing meetings with professional music publishers, live performances at The Bluebird Café and Musicians Corner, a three-day trip to Nashville, Tenn.
This year’s lyric-only winner is Char Cordova for “Chevy Bound For Lonely.” Among other prizes, Tia Sillers will mentor Cordova. All of the top songs and entrants can be seen at nashvillesongwriter.com.
The 16th Annual NSAI Song Contest will be announced later this year.
