Those who wait to be discovered are called “waiters” and Nashville is full of them. Make discovery happen!
Are you a songwriter looking for a quality event to perform your original song, make connections with other serious songwriters, meet music industry people, get promotion and possibly win awesome prizes totaling over $2500, and perform your winning song on the main stage at the Country Fan Jam Festival?
Nashville Rising Star is a songwriter open-mic contest open to ALL original songwriters of ALL genres of music. This event is all about the song! It’s not a talent show, or a best singer contest. We’re looking for great songs! So, if you have a song that you think is great, come on out, share it, get feedback from music industry pros and an attentive audience and see what happens!
This week (Wednesday March 25) is Preliminary Round #4 of 7. This is a GREAT WEEK to come share your song and get feedback! We have Don Demumbrum/VP of A&R for NATIONAL UNDERGROUND RECORDS (Gavin & Joey DeGraw), Ricky B Rogers/Bassist/Producer for Kid Rock, Tom Sabella/Page2 Management, and Robert Rodriguez/Rare Entertainment as our music industry judges.
You can come to as many prelim rounds as you want! (if you win a prelim round, you come back for the semi-finals, being held on April 22)
We require no advance auditions, all you do is come to Wild Wing Cafe in Cool Springs, TN between 6-7pm and sign up. I’ll be there to greet you and provide information about the event and get you signed up.
The event starts at 7:00pm. We hand out voting sheets to the audience and songwriters (yes, they vote too so bring your friends out to support you!) so they can keep track of the songwriters and their songs. Our music industry judges also vote for their favorite song, based on the quality of the songwriting and can the song be pitched with a minimal amount of work.
WATCH IT LIVE!
Tell your out of town friends, family and fans to watch the event LIVE at:
Each preliminary winner receives a $25 gift card courtesy of Wild Wing Cafe for their awesome food and drinks! We’ll also do a random drawing for an awesome capo from G7th Capos! The grand prize winner receives $500 cash from Wild Wing Cafe, $100 cash from Global Songwriters, plus other great prizes and opportunities!
