On Wednesday Jan. 15, 2013, Jessica hosted a great show with featured guests from the professional music community of Nashville, Music City U.S.A.
Rob Beckham, Co-Pres., WME Mashville; Becca Walls, On-Air Personality, WKDF Nashville; Brandi Simms, Sr. Mgr. of Membership, Country Music Association; Bradley Collins, Sr. Dir. Writer/ Publisher Relations BMI and others joined the discussion.
From how to get heard in Nashville, to speculation on up-coming awards, the importance of social media to the ways the industry are adopting to new methods, they cover an amazing spectrum in the conversation.
There is a wealth of information to be gleaned from this one, folks. Put your listenin’ ears on and pay attention! For example when they talk about Colt Ford and his demographic.

Next up for #Twangout on G+ LIZARD LICK TOWING, I gotta say, I’m looking forward!
