The ASCAP Nashville creative team has announced the songwriters selected for the 8th annual ASCAP GPS Project. The GPS (Guidance from Publishers for Songwriters) program showcases songwriters the creative team has identified as ready or very close to being ready for a publishing deal. Over the course of the year, the writers will be paired with publishers who will listen and critique their songs, and then participate in a follow-up meeting to help develop the writer and solidify the relationship. By the end of the year, the writer will have met with at least five publishers.
The ASCAP GPS Project class of 2019 includes songwriters Kyle Daniel, Owen Danoff, Makayla Lynn, Michelle Pereira, Blane Mitchell, Joe Ragosta, Lauren Weintraub and Hunter Wolkonowski.
The publishers participating in the 2019 ASCAP GPS Project include Big Machine, Combustion, King Pen, Sea Gayle, Downtown, Big Yellow Dog, Concord, Black River and Universal.
