Warning messageSubmissions for this form are closed.
ENTRY PERIOD: MAY 8 - MAY 12, 2020
SUBMISSION FORM WILL CLOSE AFTER 100 SONGS ARE RECEIVED
Nashville Needs A Song is a joint initiative of the Mayor’s Office, Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and Nashville Songwriters Association International. We are asking Music City's songwriters to submit compositions to help inspire and uplift Nashvillians as they navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts. Nashville was challenged by other cities to come up with a song, and winning songwriters will receive prize money as they also are experiencing difficulties caused by the pandemic.
The contest is open to songwriters who are active NSAI members. At least one of the co-writers must be a resident of Davidson County. Submissions should be made below from Friday, May 8 to Tuesday, May 12.
To encourage submissions and to help those who keep the music playing in Music City, the NCVC is offering prize money from its COVID-19 relief fund, which is part of its charitable foundation:
$2,500 to the winning songwriter, along with $1,000 for second place and $500 for third!
The winning song may be used by the city and NCVC as part of marketing initiatives. Writers and their publishers will retain all future rights to the song.
