On August 24, 2016 rising female artist Skye Claire (Mandolin Entertainment) and Sony Music Nashville recording artist CAM performed for the graduating class of the ninth annual Rising Through The Ranks seminar at a private dinner in Nashville, TN. The annual event, presented by The Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), in conjunction with Broadcast Music, Inc. ® (BMI) ®, and the Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio Group (MIW), welcomed over twenty scholarship recipients from around the country to Music City.
The night was a highlight for the women in attendance. While enjoying the company of new friends, and radio colleagues, Claire performed her brand new single, “Pawn Shop,” which is impacting radio on September 15th.
“Rising Through the Ranks (RTTR) was an incredible experience that I’ll never forget. I was able to learn so much from some of the most inspiring and motivated women in radio. Being a part of the RTTR class of 2016 as a BMI songwriter helped me to grow as a person and an artist”. – Skye Claire
