LINES AND RHYMES is hosted by music industry professional and Tennessee-native, Ralston Wells in conjunction with his entertainment company, Six Senses Entertainment, LLC. “With the growing interest in songwriting stemming from the hit show, 'NASHVILLE' and 'Songland,'people flock to Music City every day to take part in the ‘Nashville Experience,’” commented Ralston, the show creator and MTSU graduate. “The top-rated TV show, 'Songland,' and the addition of the upcoming show, 'The Song,' has fueled the fire and created an all-time high in those interested in how a song is created.” People can enjoy a cocktail on Broadway, catch songwriter shows all over town and visit the world-famous Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame, however, none of these venues offer an individual to be part of, experience and watch a song develop from an idea to a completed song. That is the concept behind LINES AND RHYMES. “It is an opportunity for a non-songwriter, a beginning songwriter or a tourist to be part of creating a song. Most of all, this is for fun and entertainment and taking 'the Nashville experience' to a different level. We want the audience to have a good time and to see and be part of a song as it is being written by top hit songwriters," added Ralston. Many invaluable tips will be provided to the aspiring writer during this event.
