Why Attend?


Come join the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), the Virginia Law Foundation and our educational division Virginia CLE® for a one-of-a-kind private, online benefit concert series to help support some of Virginia’s worthiest law-related not-for-profits … while also restoring some joy, some normalcy, and something special to look forward to during these challenging and turbulent days.

Before the show, watch the optional Encore CLE ethics seminar from the 45th Annual Recent Developments in the Law 2019 program, led by Bar Counsel Renu Brennan.

Sponsored by Sensei Enterprises, Inc.

Our first online benefit concert is Friday, May 15, 2020 at 7:00 pm ET, and will feature one of Nashville’s most acclaimed, entertaining, and recognizable performing songwriters – Kent Blazy.

Kent, along with Garth Brooks, co-wrote the colossal #1 hit If Tomorrow Never Comes, which shares a message that becomes more universally relevant with each day that now passes.

Other hit songs from Kent include "Ain't Goin' Down ('Til the Sun Comes Up)" — Garth Brooks; "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)" — Chris Young; "Somewhere Other Than the Night" — Garth Brooks, just to name a few.

As much you will be awestruck by Kent Blazy the performer, the artist, the writer — if you read the story below you’ll be even more in awe of Kent Blazy the person. Read the story here.

Please know too that the VLF share of the net proceeds will go entirely toward funding grants to some of Virginia’s worthiest not-for-profits. In 2019 these organizations included the VCU Health System’s Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP); The Legal Aid Society of Roanoke Valley’s Victim Services Project; and the Virginia Poverty Law Center’s Annual Statewide Legal Aid Conference.

Plus … Introducing our new, discounted Encore CLE

For those of you wishing to receive 1 hour of Ethics Credit prior to the concert, we are proud to introduce our exciting new discounted Encore CLE initiative.

For a total of only $85 we will offer a package of an hour of Ethics CLE plus the concert that follows! The CLE program begins at 6:00 pm ET on May 15, and though not live-interactive, this pre-recorded streaming replay of Bar Counsel Renu Brennan’s Ethics seminar from the June 2019 45th Annual Recent Developments in the Law 2019: News from the Courts and General Assembly nonetheless provides essential guidance for legal professionals , summarizing recent developments in professional regulation.

Topics will include Revocations, Misconduct Suspensions, Public Reprimands, and Public Admonitions.
