On Sept. 10, Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business launched its inaugural Professional-in-Residence series with Wynonna Judd presenting on the topic: “Journey of the Creative Business Mind.” Designed to enrich the university environment by exposing students to industry professionals who will help ensure that the Belmont learning experience remains dynamic, the Professional-in-Residence Program provides a small group of senior level students the opportunity to engage Wynonna in an intimate, conversational setting. Along with Judd, her manager Kerry Hansen and long-time producer and musician Don Potter will contribute to an ongoing Q&A discussion panel series.
Of her participation in the Professional in Residence program, Wynonna said, “I am looking forward to the opportunity to share my testimony with the next generation in hopes that my story will encourage them to follow their dreams.”
The three-part series will explore topics related to Wynonna’s personal journey in the entertainment industry as both an artist and a businesswoman. Student Megan Lopez said, “I think she gave a very eye-opening and inspiring advice on being an artist… It changed my whole view on how to approach my music career.”
