Fiona Prine Rebukes Lawmakers For Refusing To Further Discussions On Absentee Voting During Pandemic

Fiona Whelan Prine has launched a petition urging Tennessee Governor Lee and Tennessee legislature to give all voters the option to vote by absentee ballot during the pandemic.

“All we’re asking for is an opportunity to apply for an absentee ballot based on the fear of contracting COVID-19 at the polls this November—the same opportunity that 45 other states have already granted their citizens. Without a vaccine, this deadly virus is not contained, and Tennesseans should not have to fear for their lives simply to exercise their constitutional right to vote,” Prine said in a statement.


Nancy Tunick, GrassRoots Promotion Launch VIP Fan Platform

Nancy Tunick and GrassRoots Promotion have announced the launch of FanTheJam, a unique, interactive VIP fan platform that lets users subscribe to an artist’s “jam” to receive exclusive digital content and special offers each month. FanTheJam gives artists the flexibility to tailor the content to their audience and create a previously untapped revenue stream.

Tunick says, “We are excited about creating a way for artists to further monetize their careers while developing an even deeper relationship with their fans. It is a modern take on fan club experiences of the past. Fans want a connection beyond social media that makes them feel special and FanTheJam provides that opportunity.”

FanTheJam’s business model is simple. The artist provides the content and markets to their fan base. FanTheJam does the rest, with no up-front fees, by building the artist’s profile, loading the content, and notifying subscribers of new assets as they are available. FanTheJam also provides creative content and marketing best practices support, and handles credit card processing and fees, with 80% of the gross proceeds going to the artist.
