Wow! What an incredible round we had at the Nashville Rising Star songwriter open-mic semi final round. Our 14 preliminary winners came back to share their song in front of a packed house and 4 music industry judges.

This is our 23rd series, and Nashville Rising Star creator/director Keith Mohr stated it was the very best semi-final round ever!

A lot was at stake in this round, as our final 4 writers not only can say they made the finals of Nashville Rising Star, each of them won live performance slots at 2 upcoming events. The Country Fan Jam festival being held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in June and the Smoky Mountain Songwriters Festival in Gatlinburg, TN coming up in August!

All of our semi-finalists did an outstanding job in their songwriting and presentation. Many who attended said how professional they all were and how impressed they were at all of the talent on the stage. Congratulations to all of our semi-finalists.
