Trevecca Nazarene University

Alumni partner to create international country radio release

Former Trevecca Nazarene University classmates Kim McLean and Benjamin Poff have turned a collaboration project into a chart-climbing country radio single as a companion to a new book "My Southern Food" via Thomas Nelson Publishers.

McLean and Poff became friends when they worked to complete their undergraduate degrees at Trevecca. Years later, while working toward his Music Engineering degree combining the programs at Trevecca and Middle Tennessee State University, Poff called upon McLean to help with his senior project.

Student engineer Adam Ellis recorded the collaboration, a southern anthology song called "Sweet Tea" complete with laughter, acoustic banjo, and thumpin' bass. It was released to secondary radio via CDX in late September 2010, along with Airplay Direct, Radio Submit, Airplay Access, and the Mark Trail Music Sampler, "Sweet Tea" is getting airplay around the world with playlists reporting spins in Japan, Australia, Germany, Sweden, and the U.S.
