After 7 weeks of open-mic prelims and 147 contestants (21 at each round), we moved on to our semi-final round of Nashville Rising Star songwriter open-mic contest!

We had an incredible semi-final round! Every song shared was excellent and we had an enthusiastic audience at Wild Wing Cafe, and a record audience online watching and voting. So many, that when it came time to vote, our website crashed and we had to reboot our server! Almost 25,000 views to the website at this round and thousands and thousands of votes were cast!
