Featured Artists:
  • Marc Beeson: This Illinois native and 20 year Nashville veteran has had over 100 cuts including songs recorded by Reba McEntire, Jason Aldean, Kenny Rogers, Martina McBride, Peter Cetera, Diamond Rio, Billy Currington, LeAnn Rimes, Lady Antebellum, Garth Brooks and Chicago, among others. He has won 10 ASCAP awards including both Country and Pop Song of the Year for his hit, "When She Cries". As an artist, he has recorded for Warner Bros., BNA and Curb Records. He serves on the Board of NSAI; has worked as a mentor in the MTSU music business program and is on the NARAS educational committee. He co-wrote the title track and current Billy Currington single, "We Are Tonight".


  • Allen Shamblin: Allen Shamblin was born in Tennessee and grew up in Huffman, Texas. In August of 1987, Allen moved to Nashville with 14 completed songs. His "story songs" with vivid detail and honest, earthy lyrics quickly caught the ear of the Nashville music establishment. In 1989, it was Randy Travis' #1 version of "He Walked On Water", which brought Allen to the forefront of the songwriting community seemingly "overnight". This began a string of award winning songs throughout the 1990's such as "In This Life" by Collin Raye, "Life's A Dance" by John Michael Montgomery, "We Were In Love" by Toby Keith, "Live, Laugh, Love" by Clay Walker and Dove Award winner "It's In God's Hands Now" by Anointed. "I Can't Make You Love Me", a song co-written with Mike Reid and recorded by Bonnie Raitt was voted the #8 song of "The 100 Greatest Songs Of All Time" in the August 2000 issue of Mojo Magazine. Allen has also co-authored two children's books (Don't Laugh At Me and A Chance To Shine). Don't Laugh At Me has been translated into several languages and is being used by teachers throughout the United States and other parts of the world as an aid against bullying.


  • Victoria Shaw: This Nashville-based, New York-born triple threat has either written or produced some of music's most memorable tunes and performed on the world's biggest stages.
    Her compositions include six #1 hits for superstar Garth Brooks ("The River" and "She's Every Woman" among them), Ricky Martin and Christina Aguilera's multi-format smash "Nobody Wants to be Lonely" and John Michael Montgomery's "I Love The Way You Love Me," which won an Academy of Country Music Award as Song of the Year. She has co-produced Lady Antebellum's platinum debut, and has penned Jim Brickman's "Sending You A Little Christmas," the Garth Brooks/Trisha Yearwood duet "Where Your Road Leads" and Eric Church's breakthrough hit, "Two Pink Lines," among others. In 1998, she collaborated with Garth Brooks, Billy Dean, Faith Hill, Olivia Newton-John, Neal McCoy, Michael McDonald and Bryan White for a charity single (written for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) titled "One Heart at a Time."
