Every April the Nashville Songwriters Association International hosts an “NSAI Chapter Challenge.”
NSAI members in Local Chapters across the globe have an opportunity to submit one pre-recorded song at their local Chapter meeting. (It does not have to be a full demo. Simple work tapes with guitar
or piano and vocals are fine.)
