Nashville Mayor John Cooper put out the call to the scores of songwriters in Davidson County. The “Nashville Needs A Song” contest requested entries that would inspire and uplift residents (and be used for promotional purposes by the Convention and Visitors Corporation).
The Nashville Songwriters Association International has narrowed the field to these three finalists:
Written by Jesse Labelle, Rob Crosby and Jamie Moore
Times Like These
Written by Conner Sweet, Lance Carpenter and Liz Hengber
We Will Survive
Written by Ryan Kinder and Justin Morgan
Davidson County residents are asked to vote here before 5 p.m. Friday.
“In our fight against the coronavirus, we could all use an anthem to help us build solidarity and inspire us in the ways that only music can,” Mayor Cooper says in a statement.
The Nashville CVC is offering prize money of $2,500 to the winner and will be able to use the music for marketing initiatives, though the writers and their publishers retain future rights to their songs.
