As one of the official partners of Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, SunTrust Bank called on CSM to activate its sponsorship with a dinner for 110 VIP clients and guests.

The exclusive dinner on April 26, 2017, featured some of Nashville’s most successful songwriters performing hits they wrote for country music’s biggest artists. This year’s event brought songwriters from SMACK Songs to the stage of the Mother Church of Country Music, including Shane McAnally, multiple Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and record producer. The Academy of Country Music named him Songwriter of the Year in 2014, and in 2015, he was the Billboard Hot Country Songwriter of the Year.  

Other performers at the special affair included Josh Osborne, one of Nashville’s go-to hit makers with number one songs by Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, and Keith Urban, accompanied by Jo Smith, an up-and-comer on the Music Row scene.  

CSM Production oversaw production of this special event for SunTrust, including the décor, catering and custom printed graphics.   

“Bert and his team at CSM have helped make the “Dinner on the Ryman Stage” our most successful event in Nashville,” said Missy Williams, vice president of marketing activation and engagement at SunTrust. “From the idea phase to execution, they offer creativity, professionalism and enthusiasm for creating the perfect, one-of-a-kind experience for our guests.”
