SESAC Celebrates Jesse Lee as Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year

SESAC hosted the 29th Annual MusicRow Awards June 28 in Nashville at the CMA event space.  This was the first time SESAC sponsored the special event.  In addition to Jesse Lee, Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year, the awards honored Breakthrough Artist, Artist-Writer, Producer and Song of the Year.  The awards also honored All-Star musicians who played on the most Billboard Top 10 album credits over the past year.

Unfortunately, Jesse Lee could not be in attendance as she was spending time abroad creating more songs with fellow colleagues. Jesse’s parents and grandmother joined the party to celebrate her successes from the past year.

For a full overview of the event and the award recipients, read MusicRow’s Bobby Karl’s recap here.
