Music is the lifeblood of Nashville, and it's everywhere you turn in our city. Music policy impacts Nashville more than other cities, which is why Jim makes it a top priority.

Intellectual property is almost exclusively the subject of federal legislation, and music policy that affects us locally is hatched in Washington, D.C. Jim is a strong supporter of intellectual property rights and rights-holders, but he is also strong believer that an appropriate balance must be struck between intellectual property owners' protections and the public's interest in accessing and making fair uses of protected works.

For example, Jim is working to finally pay our artists and musicians when their works are played on the radio, while protecting small broadcasters.
