MTSUâsÂ Department of Recording IndustryÂ is back onÂ Billboard’s semi-annual list of the nationâsÂ top music business schools, once again joining its counterparts at Berklee, UCLA and New York University as standouts in educating the next generation of music industry pros.
MTSU alumnusÂ Pete FisherÂ left his executive position with the Grand Ole Opry Jan. 30 to become CEO of the California-based Academy of Country Music.
The College of Media and Entertainment celebrated this year’s GRAMMYs in Los Angeles alongside some of the music industry’s top players with three days of activities that profiled its nationally recognized Recording Industry program.
MTSU honored Alicia Warwick, executive director of The Recording Academyâs Nashville chapter, at aÂ Feb. 7 eventÂ in downtown Los Angeles as part of the universityâs second-annual outreach during the GRAMMY Awards.
Beginning in Fall 2014, music industry majors at MTSU will have a chance for financial assistance that pays homage to country music legend Charlie Daniels.
