NSAI Announces Promotions, Staff Additions

The Nashville Songwriters Association International has promoted Shelby Yoder to Director of Professional Membership and Events and added four new team members to the staff.

Yoder moves to the director position after nearly two years with NSAI as Logistics Coordinator. In her new position her primary focus will be on songwriter membership, NSAI special events, and the Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival.

”We are beyond excited to expand Shelby’s role with NSAI.  She has been a phenomenal member of the team for the past two years and I can’t wait to see how much more she can bring to the organization with her new responsibilities,” said Jennifer Turnbow, Senior Director of Operations.  “It’s an exciting time at NSAI as we have been able to bring on some amazing talent and really play to the strengths of our employees.  I believe we have assembled a team that will take our next 50 years to a whole other level and allow us to serve songwriters to our utmost potential.”

Four new staffers have joined NSAI as well: Brittni Talley (Marketing Director), Brooke Perry (Executive Assistant), Jolie Grace Wareham (Logistics Coordinator), and Whitney Ingram (Receptionist), with all positions taking effect immediately.

Talley joins NSAI after several years with Country Thunder Music Festivals as a project manager and eventually Creative Director handling marketing, advertising, and event logistics. Prior to Country Thunder she worked as a publicist with Webster Public Relations.

Perry, a recent graduate of the University of Florida, joins NSAI as Executive Assistant after gaining extensive experience through internships and positions with CMT, Warner Music Nashville, Pilgrimage Music Festival, and the Country Music Association.

Wareham graduated from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn. in 2017 after obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science.

Ingram, a graduate of Belmont University, returned to Nashville after two years in the Family Criminal Law Division of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office in her hometown of Houston, Texas.
