Tips From Nashville

I'd personally like to thank all the persons contributing to this page, especially our honored "guests".
Sincere thanks ... Janet

We asked "What are the three WORST things a writer can do when Pitching Nashville... and the three BEST?"

JERRY CUPIT
(Producer, Nashville)

WORST
1. Send a tape we can't hear or understand.
2. Enclose hand-written lyrics.
3. Enclose a long-winded description of songs.

BEST
1. BE PATIENT!
2. Include S.A.S.E. or em-mail address for reply.
3. Only send up to 3 (three) songs.

ERIC GALLIMORE
(Gallimore Productions, Nashville)

WORST
1. If not signed to a publisher in Nashville, it's very hard to get doors open for you.
2. Usually takes a long time before you can get a cut, which is discouraging.
3. Not being with a great publisher who will mold you into being a great writer.

BEST
1. Very relaxed hours. May work for 3 hours for 3 days according to publisher and one's self.
2. The publisher pays a draw "which varies" and you have to try to make money back for the company, if not making money may lose job.
3. When you get a cut, a #1 Smash it could be worth $250,000.00. (once you recieve all royalties.)
