The event, which will celebrate the NSAI’s 50th anniversary, will feature Country singer/songwriters Rhett Akins and Rivers Rutherford, who have written 34 chart-topping songs between them, as they play some of their biggest hits and explain the stories behind them.


“We are thrilled to honor the NSAI after 50 incredible years by shining a spotlight on Rhett and Rivers, two of their finest songwriters,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “Their performances are sure to inspire and entertain all of our Music Biz 2017 attendees, especially the songwriters who aspire to achieve the same level of success these two have earned with the NSAI’s help.”
“Rhett Akins and Rivers Rutherford could not be better songwriter representatives for the NSAI at Music Biz 2017,” said Bart Herbison, Executive Director of the NSAI. “We value our partnership with the Music Business Association, so we are bringing our very best to this songwriters’ round. After all, we want to show off a little bit during NSAI’s 50th Anniversary year!” See full press release and performer bios here.
