Each person will be given a 60-second time frame to impress a panel of judges that hold credible positions in the music industry. Judges include MTSU alumnus and former Beat Battle champion Daniel Youngfamed 20-year-old hip-hop producer Yo G-Money and Sean Giovanni, the owner of The Record Shop Recording Studio in Nashville.
