Patriotic Songwriting Initiative:
Who will be the Francis Scott Key or George M. Cohan of our generation? Inspired by our work with the fantastic Heartland of America Band at Offutt Air Force Base, we were encouraged to launch a Patriotic Songwriting Initiative to encourage contemporary composers and songwriters to contribute their skills to develop more modern Americana anthems. Up-tempo songs are especially encouraged!
