NSAI has been really valuable to me, especially the videos that you have. For writers like myself who live outside of Nashville, the videos really give an insight into how music row works. Right now I have a song that is getting some radio airplay, it's called "Their Country Called". It's being played in a number of smaller markets and some large markets too, but the important thing is that it's exposure for the song.  read more...
