Four students join Moo TV to help with Country Rising

mootv logoFour students from Mike Forbes’s Media Arts 3090 Media Technology class were invited by Moo TV in Nashville to come to Bridgestone Arena to assist the head LED technicians for the Country Rising Benefit Concert on Nov. 12. Students Josh Cragg, Caroline Steele, John Holeman and Minh Phan worked alongside some of the biggest stars in country music, as well as some of the best LED technicians in the industry.

Headliners for the concert included Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.

Forbes, the assistant director of technical systems in the Department of Media Arts (formerly Electronic Media Communication), mentioned that Moo TV worked with the students during Murphy Madness, MTSU’s annual fall basketball event held in Murphy Center.

“Moo TV was so impressed with their work ethic and attitude that they specifically asked for them to come join them for the concert,” Forbes said.

Students Cragg, Steele and Phan are Media Arts Video & Film Production majors and Holeman is a Recording Industry major.

Moo TV is an award-winning production company in live entertainment and LED services. The company recently moved into a 70,000-square-foot facility near downtown Nashville. The space, nicknamed the Steel Mill, allows artists to rehearse large concert productions before starting to tour. Some of the acts that have used it already include Tears for Fears, Toby Mac, Kenny Chesney and Moo TV partners Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley.
