NRS Prelim 3 Round 4 Recap

Seems the word is really getting out about Nashville Rising Star! We had the most signups we’ve ever had in our 23 series! 33 songwriters came out to share their song. We had to do a drawing for the last performance slots (which we don’t like to do, but if we didn’t we would be there until midnight!). We ended up with 22 songwriters sharing their songs, and like many other rounds, we heard lots of good songs! We had anther great crowd as well, and it is encouraging to see people coming out to help pick our next Nashville Rising Star!
