Congratulations to the writers below who had songs recommended between October 1 and October 31 for consideration for our Publisher Luncheon. These were submitted to the Song Evaluation Service and were recommended by the NSAI Evaluators who reviewed them.

NSAI staffers will review all songs recommended between August 1 and November 30 for consideration to be played at our December 2015 Publisher Luncheon. We will choose up to 15 songs and they will be played for our publisher and industry guests in December 2015.
