Craig Wiseman and Lori McKenna Mentor NSAI Song Contest

Registration for CMT and Martin Guitar and Strings Competition Ends Oct. 31

Most rising songwriters would give their “write” arms to score the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities offered through the 19th annual NSAI Song Contest presented by CMT and Martin Guitar and Strings. The time alone with mentors, Grammy winners Craig Wiseman and Lori McKenna, is worth entering.

Wiseman discovered Florida Georgia Line and helped Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard become the hit-making masters they are today. He also co-wrote massive hits for Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Brooks & Dunn, and Blake Shelton.

McKenna was one of the leading Americana and country music Grammy nominees in 2016 with her album, The Bird & the Rifle. That year, she won the best country song Grammy as the songwriter behind McGraw’s “Humble and Kind.” Her latest release The Tree arrived in July.
