On the first day of the Nashville Recording Workshop, keynote speaker Kristian Bush sang the praises of API to a crowd of over 400 students, professionals, and exhibitors. The singer, songwriter, and producer is best known for his work as one half of the country music super-group Sugarland. After referencing API for the fifth time in his talk, API Director of Sales, Dan Zimbelman pulled a 'Kanye' and took the microphone to assure the crowd that Kristian Bush received no compensation for his glowing endorsement of the company. As laughter from the crowd subsided, Dan presented Bush an official API keychain from the company.
"Kristian Bush has expressed his immense appreciation for the API product line and we are honored to hear he is as big a fan of API as we are of his music," said Zimbelman of his experience.
