A DAY FOR MUSIC ADVOCACY

New Recording Academy chief Deborah Dugan rallied the troops in Nashville for District Advocate Day on Wednesday, meeting with a driving force in the call for impeachment, Rep. Jim Cooper. On hand were, from left, Philip “Chandler” Towns, Anderson East, Shane McAnally, Caitlyn Smith, Cooper, Dave Haywood and Dugan.

In meetings with elected officials, nearly 2,000 Academy members addressed industry concerns, including copyright protections and establishing a performance right on terrestrial radio.

Dugan said the day “reminds legislators of the vital role they play in our communities and our culture.”

Cooper has backed musicians ahead of negotiations that start next week with the film and television companies and the Nashville Musicians Association. “Musicians should be paid for their work used on TV or film streaming platforms,” he tweeted. “I will continue to fight for the fair compensation these artists deserve.”
