THE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION  WELCOMES INDUSTRY PARTNERS AT MUSIC BIZ 2019

The Country Music Association hosted music industry partners and colleagues during the Music Business Association’s annual conference – Music Biz 2019, held this week in Nashville. CMA sponsored the event’s kickoff festivities today, which included a welcome breakfast and CMA Songwriters Series performance, at the JW Marriott in Nashville.

Following opening remarks by CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern, guests enjoyed a special CMA Songwriters Series showcasing rising Country up-and-comers Kassi Ashton, Danielle Bradbery and Cassadee Pope. Each artist took turns sharing the stories behind their songs and performed them in an intimate acoustic style.

“We jumped at the opportunity to showcase these three talented artists,” said Trahern. “Each one is a talented writer, while also among the best and most unique voices in Country today. It’s exciting to support them as the next generation of superstars in our genre.”

Set List:
Kassi Ashton – “California, Missouri”
Cassadee Pope – “Take You Home”
Danielle Bradbery – “Sway”
Kassi Ashton – “Taxidermy”
Cassadee Pope – “If My Heart Had A Heart”

Following the inspiring songwriters round, Music Business Association President Jim Donio addressed the audience. Throughout the four-day Music Biz conference, attendees will enjoy industry panels, hands-on demos of new products and services, professional development seminars and more.
