Charlie Crow NSAI Memorial Fund

The Charlie Crow Memorial NSAI Fund has been established by Charlie & Anne Crow in 2020. Charlie passed in December 2019.  It was Charlie's wish that the Central Arkansas Chapter he founded in 2005 carry on, and knowing the local chapter needed funds on a monthly basis, a method for folks to donate to help has been created. By clicking on the donate button you can go to Paypal (you don't need a Paypal account) and contribute. You simply enter the amount you wish to donate , and use your credit or debit card, or your paypal account if you have one. Your credit card info is not saved by NSAI or Paypal. Our mission is to help educate songwriters to improve their craft, and to promote and support Arkansas songwriters.

Central Arkansas Chapter

The Central Arkansas Regional Chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association International hosts educational and interactive monthly workshops and writer's night events. We support many other original music and songwriting-related activities throughout Central Arkansas. NSAI Central Arkansas was started by the late Charlie Crow in 2005. Don Tucker became a coordinator in 2015. Casey Penn became a coordinator in 2019, and we welcomed Paul Tull as a coordinator in 2020.

We're dedicated to the enrichment of songwriters who study "the craft" and welcome all ages and genres, from beginners to seasoned vets. If you're interested in becoming a better songwriter, check us out by visiting a workshop or showcase. Click the Events tab at the top of the page for the next one! 

We proudly follow the examples set by our national organization, NSAI.
