Originally from Luttrell, Tennessee, Craig Monday's journey into songwriting started when he and some buddies formed a rock band and wound up needing some original songs for a show... Something they didn't have at the time. Craig decided to give it a go, wrote a song, and well, the rest is history. He started writing for country, and after moving to Nashville in 1996, he won NSAI's World's Largest Open Mic, which he said was one of the first things to boost his confidence that he could pursue songwriting. Since then, he has had cuts with Kenny Chesney, Randy Houser, Vince Gill, Diamond Rio, Amy Grant, The Blind Boys of Alabama and Jamey Johnson. 
Singer/songwriter Benita Hill has had cuts in nearly every genre there is, from country, pop and rock to jazz, gospel and musical theater. She is a cowriter on Garth Brooks' "It's Your Song" and "Two Pina Coladas," and has had other cuts with Isaac Hayes, Crystal Cayle, Kirk Whalum, Kevin Whalum, Take 6 and more. Benita has released seven albums of her own, has toured as a background singer with the Allman Brothers, J.J. Cale, Conway Twitty and others, and is the voice behind "Santa Baby" in the Jaguar Automobiles commercials. As if her accomplishments weren't already impressive enough, Benita self-produced the documentary "The Healing Power of a Song" and co=wrote six songs for the international movie musical, "Cooking for Two."



All mentor sessions must take place during your membership year to be counted, so plan accordingly! Credits do not roll over from year to year.
