"NSAI is honored that an American icon of Charlie Daniels' stature recognizes our hard work in legislative advocacy on behalf of all songwriters. No one represents our motto, "IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG" better than the man whose music has crossed so many boundaries and genres to mark the moments of our lives," said NSAI President, Grammy-nominated songwriter Steve Bogard. "The CDB's help comes at a critical time in the music industry and will assist NSAI in continuing our important mission."
Tickets to the event are available at the Wildhorse Saloon's boxoffice or at Ticketmaster.
