NSAI Members Ben Wagner, Jarrod Gipson, Brooks Huntley, Mark Taylor, Ava Paige and Ryan Jacobs were featured at Hometown Pub Takeover on Friday, September 9, with two stellar back to back writer rounds.
The Hometown Pub Takeover was created to foster community within the music industry during a happy hour at the annual ACM week in Las Vegas. After several years, the group decided to bring the event to their favorite hometown honky-tonk, Nashville’s Scoreboard Bar and Grill. The second Friday of each month the group continues to provide a spot for industry creatives to gather while curating performances from Nashville’s best signed and unsigned talent.
This event was created by Alex Heddle (Big Machine Music), Aubrey Rupe (Sony Music Publishing), Brandon Perdue (Riser House Entertainment), Courtney Crist (Anthem Entertainment), Chris Van Belkom (Combustion Music), Dave Pacula (Liz Rose Music), Janine Ebach (Ebach Entertainment), Kendall Lettow (Peer Music), Nicole Wyatt (Carnival Music), Penny Gattis (Eclipse Music Group), Stephanie Cox (Kobalt Music), Trina Smith-Dort (MeGusta Music).
