Elyse Bushard is a Social Media Content Manager at Madwire Media in Fort Collins, CO. She has volunteered and interned at over 25 music festivals, award shows and events, including 8 years at the ACM Awards and 2 years at the ACM Honors Show. She loves working side by side with her ACM family every year because they are some of the most amazing, craziest bunch of music lovers on the planet - aka her kind of people. The craziest thing she has ever done is skydive over the Whitsunday Islands in Australia. Other than that, she prefers to hang out with her two corgis, family and friends in Colorado with a glass of wine. She loves the creativity and reliability of country music songwriting and how one verse can touch and change multiple lives.
