Hope you are well and thank you for your interest in Nashville Rising Song!
You may know us as Nashville Rising Star. We changed our name for our new series since it better reflects our focus. NRS is “all about the song.”
We are starting our 31st total series (1st as Nashville Rising Song) on Monday, January 8, 2018 at Tin Roof Midtown on Demonbruen St near Music Row.
Nashville Rising Song is a singer/songwriter open-mic contest where Nashville area (and beyond) songwriters share their best songs in front of a live (and online) audience and music industry personnel.
Both the audience and music industry professional judges select a winning song at each of the 10 weekly preliminary rounds.
We then bring 20 writers back for the semifinal round where the audience selects 1 and the judges select 3 to move onto the final round.
The final 4 writers share 4 songs each and a winning song is selected. See our rules and FAQ pages for more info on how the event works. Click Here to see pictures of previous events.
The winner receives cash and prizes provided by our sponsors and partners.
We also stream the event live via nrslive.com, and typically we have a 3-5 thousand watching and voting at each prelim round, and well over 20,000 watching and voting at the semi-final and final rounds!
We’ve been holding this event for the past 9 years as Nashville Rising Star and it is known as the premier discovery vehicle for songwriters, industry, and fans of new music! See our press release on our new series Here.

We’re already promoting this series and generating huge interest as we have great momentum from our previous series response (We had 50+ songwriters come out at each open prelim round wanting to share their song!) and want to extend an offer to you to be a prize partner/sponsor for this upcoming series.
We’re looking for partners and sponsors who want to reach active and engaged Nashville area songwriters and artists and who look to us as a credible source to learn about products and services. Being associated with Nashville Rising Song increases your brand and awareness and it’s always best if someone else toots your horn! The big benefit and payoff for you is that you get more clients! So, consider partnering or sponsoring our next series, we’d love to have you!
As a Sponsor you will receive the following:
We will talk about your product/service and provide your URL during our welcome at each event.
Your logo will be displayed on a large 12×8′ step repeating banner displayed on stage behind the songwriters.
Your business cards/promo will be on our table at each event
We will list your product/service in our promotional emails sent to over 2000 active songwriters who have participated in our event.
We will provide you the names and email address of every songwriter who participates in this series of Nashville Rising Song at the end of the series so you can reach out to them for your marketing and promotional purposes.
As you can see, this is a fantastic, one of a kind promotional opportunity for you and will get you in front of a very targeted and engaged audience!
The investment is $250 and a prize for either the 4 finalists, or the final grand prize winner.
Let me know ASAP if you are interested, as we only want 1 of each type of service at each series for maximum return on your investment. We already have some locked in, and most are returning partner/sponsors, so that means they have seen value!
Call or text me at: 615-594-0426 and let me know ASAP so we can add you to our website right away and start promoting your service and product!
The sooner we receive your payment, the sooner you will lock in your spot and benefit from our promotion! This is a first paid, first in opportunity!
