We lost our dear friend and founder of the Central Arkansas NSAI Chapter , Charlie Crow. Charlie passed from this earth on Dec 25 2019. He founded this chapter in 2005, and was instrumental in our growth as an organizer and a songwriting mentor. We will carry on the chapter in his memory, though there will be a huge void, and his presence will be greatly missed. The memorial service will not be a NSAI event, it will be hosted by the church and his family. All friends of Charlie,are welcome and encouraged to attend and show support for his wife Anne, children, grandchildren and siblings. In lieu of flowers, you can direct gifts to the Church , and / or Arkansas Prostrate Cancer Foundation , of which Charlie was Chairman . Their website is arprostratecancer.org .

Tin Pan South Songwriting Seminar (TPSSS) is the perfect event for songwriters of any genre and any skill level to further develop their songwriting toolkit, build a stronger network, and learn from enriching segments from experts across the music industry. We're excited to reveal a fresh format and a new location in the heart of Music City! As NSAI’s longest-running event (over 20 years) we are proud to say that this seminar has been the standard by which all other Nashville songwriting seminars are measured. Former Spring Training attendees include hit writers Jon Vezner (Where’ve You Been – Kathy Mattea), Tia Sillers (I Hope You Dance – LeAnne Womack), Barry Dean (Girls Chase Boys - Ingrid Michaelson, Pontoon – Little Big Town) and Lance Carpenter (Love Me Like You Mean It – Kelsea Ballerini).
