Join Us In JA BizTown for our Songwriters' Night!

Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee's Backstage at BizTown brings together three Nashville songwriters at JA BizTown - a mock city where 4th-6th grade students take on the roles of employees, consumers, and even taxpayers! Featuring great music, food and drinks, and a silent auction, Backstage at BizTown will benefit the almost 38,000 students JA of Middle Tennessee serves annually.
