Full Sail Grad Alyssa McCraw: Interning on Nashville’s Music Row

Consider a list of the country’s foremost musical epicenters and Nashville is sure to top it. So when Alyssa McCraw graduated from the Entertainment Business Bachelor’s program this past September, her sights narrowed on the musical metropolis in northern Tennessee.

“I always knew I wanted to be in the music business in Nashville,” says Alyssa, who applied for an internship at one of the most successful record labels in Nashville, Big Machine Label Group.

Thanks to an introduction by Full Sail’s Career Development team and armed with the inside knowledge she gleaned from doing a project on Big Machine Label Group in her Entertainment Business Marketing & Strategic Planning course, Alyssa landed an intern spot creating visual creative content for artists like Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, and Reba McEntire.
