Another great night of songwriting at Nashville Rising Star Songwriter Open-Mic Preliminary Round 3. We had some writers return from previous Prelims to give it another try and some new songwriters graced out stage. All in all, a very strong night of songwriting! We heard some excellent performances, but like Sue says, “It’s all about the song!”
