Marissa Mitchell, a Crossville native, had the opportunity last night, Wednesday, June 17th, to perform onstage with the Rolling Stones in their Zipcode Tour in Nashville.

Marissa says the experience "was nothing short of epic. To share the stage with such legends, who are as kind as they are entertaining, was the opportunity of a lifetime. What a thrill to have a picture of the video showing me larger than life singing with Mick Jagger!" Marissa attended Belmont University where she was awarded a Faculty Scholarship and graduated Magna cum Laude Belmont Scholar with a major in French and a minor in vocal performance in May.
