Calling All Yorkshire Songwriters!
Nashville - Music City
British Airways is on the hunt for Nashville’s next biggest hit.
The airline is looking for the new Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton or Sheryl Crow, and wants to give undiscovered talent the chance to write a hit record ahead of the launch of their new direct service to Music City.

From May 2018, British Airways will launch a five-a-week service from Heathrow, Terminal 5 and will be the only carrier flying direct between Europe and the capital of Tennessee.

In partnership with the airline, multi- PLATINUM singer-songwriter, Kip Moore; GRAMMY Award winning songwriter and owner of Cornman Music, Brett James; and Vice President of A&R for Starlight Publishing, Alex Torrez, Nashville is giving amateur songwriters of any genre the chance to be heard.
Budding songwriters are being asked to write a three-minute song which focuses on London, Nashville and travel, and entries will be judged on originality, melody, composition and lyrics. The winner will then be selected by Moore, James and Torrez.

On March 8 the winner will attend the CMA Songwriters Series and meet Kip Moore and Brett James at Europe’s biggest country music festival, C2C: Country 2 Country, which takes place at London’s O2 arena.
The successful songwriter and a friend will then jet off to Nashville as the exclusive prize package includes return flights and six nights’ accommodation at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel. While in town, they will also be given tickets to the Grand Ole Opry, as well visit the Songwriters Round at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe, before rounding off the VIP trip with tickets to the illustrious CMA Fest.
