Day 4 of The Nashville Connection

The Nashville Connection music competition is a great opportunity for singers and songwriters who do not normally have the time or money to travel to Nashville. Singers and songwriters in the competition will learn from the best in their fields and have the chance to become the grand finalist winners, featured as the opening act for our Heroes Salute Gala


Two competition winners, one singer and one songwriter, will receive $25,000 worth of opportunity prizes to promote their music in the top circles of Nashville. Prizes up for grabs include vocal lessons, studio recording time, website development, radio promotion, portfolio, and image consulting. In addition, the two winners will be featured as the opening acts at the Heroes Salute Gala.
