Nashville Singer/Songwriters 11 January 2021 1530 - 1630

If we can’t bring 2021 AIAA SciTech to Nashville, we’ll bring a little of Nashville to you! Join us as we hear from two professional singer/songwriters, as they perform their hits, tell personal stories about the stars who recorded their songs, and share the details that inspired them to write them.

Victoria Banks
Victoria Banks has won two 2010 Canadian Country Music Association awards — Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year! Notable cuts include Jessica Simpson’s Billboard record-breaking single “Come on Over,” Sara Evans’ hit “Saints & Angels” and duet “Can’t Stop Loving You” (with Isaac Slade of the band The Fray), X Factor winner Tate Steven’s “Ordinary Angels,” One More Girl’s breakout BCCMA-winning hit “When It Ain’t Raining,” Doc Walker’s chart-topping “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” and Johnny Reid’s smash “Dance With Me,” for which Victoria was named 2010 CCMA Songwriter of the Year.

Billy Kirsch
Hit songwriter Billy Kirsch has harnessed the power of creativity to lead a successful life as an entertainer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. His body of work includes award winning songs and career songs for the artists who have recorded them. “Holes n The floor Of Heaven” recorded by Steve Wariner, won a Country Music Association song of the year award, was nominated for a Grammy award and was a number one hit. Top 10 songs, “Is It Over Yet” and “Come Some Rainy Day,” both recorded by Wynonna Judd, have become standards in the repertoire. “Stay Gone” launched singer Jimmy Wayne’s career as a Top 5 single. The list of artists who have recorded Billy’s songs include Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers, Englebert Humperdink, Alabama, Mark Wills, Clay Walker, and more.
