Vote for UT Alumnus, Staff Member in Nashville Album Cover Contest

LeeHumeA design by Lee Hume, an art director in the Office of Communications and Marketing, is a semi-finalist in a contest for the ABC television show Nashville.

Hume, who graduated from UT in 1982 with a degree in fine arts, entered a contest to design the new album cover art for one of the show’s characters, Rayna Jaymes, portrayed on the show by actress Connie Britton. Hume’s design was chosen as one of ten semi-finalists. The public is invited to vote on their favorite design to narrow the field down to five finalists. The finalists will then be sent to the show’s producers, who will choose the winner.
