First Writers Night of 2016 Starts Off the Year with Country Flair

The Curb College kicked off its first 2016 ASCAP Writers Night by introducing student writers Betsy Lane, Brad Blackburn, Noreen Prunier and Alyssa Newton. After the students performed, Marc Beeson, veteran song-writer, was invited to the stage.

Beeson has written many number one hits including, “We Are Tonight,” a country music star Billy Currington recording. The song gained popularity and broke into the top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 list in 2013.  Beeson has songwriting credits for numerous other acts including Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Garth Brooks and Ronnie Milsap.

Blackburn won the night and will be performing at Belmont’s Best of the Best showcase on April 9.
