NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 15, 2012) - The Christian Musician Summit, which debuted in Nashville October 4-6, with workshops and performances featuring top musicians in the contemporary Christian and country music industries, including Ashley Cleveland, Phil Keaggy, Ron Block, Allen Shamblin, Brenton Brown & The Worship Republic, Steve Taylor, Tom Hemby, Dave Cleveland, Cindy Morgan, Zoro the drummer, and many others, was a Music City hit, according to organizers and participants. For anyone who missed the conference or desires to relive the experience, CMS Nashville highlights soon will be available to be streamed online. CMS Nashville was presented in partnership with Kingdom Bound Ministries.

"CMS Nashville had more musical moments to it than any conference we have done before... and that is saying something because we have had some memorable moments over the years," says Bruce Adolph, producer of Christian Musician Summit. "The level of musicianship was over the top. You couldn't throw a guitar pick without hitting an 'A-list' session player!

"Each evening concert had a Songwriter in the Round segment and they were outstanding as well. The registrants got to spend quality time with well-known musicians who led their workshops with a heart to impart what they knew to the attendees," Adolph says. " It was amazing! To see Phil Keaggy, Ashley Cleveland and Al Perkins walk on and be backed up by the Blues Counsel Band was one of the highlights. Then to have Dave Cleveland and Tom Hemby's session player-laden bands take you on a musical adventure was incredible, too."

The conference will be available via online streaming soon, Adolph says, with the streaming package to include 15 workshops and live music bonus tracks available by registering at "CMS Nashville was an amazing time of improving skill and inspiring talent," Adolph says.
