Casey Beathard Proud To Have ‘No Problems’

Posted in News on November 22, 2004
Casey Beathard celebrated another milestone the day after being named BMI's 2004 Country Songwriter of the Year -- his hit "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems" earned a BMI Million-Air Award for collecting one million brodcast performances. The single appeared on Kenny Chesney's BNA Records release by the same name, which hit the top of the country charts in 2002.

Beathard previously received Million-Air certificates for "Right Where I Need To Be" (Gary Allan), "Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo" (Tracy Byrd) and "Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly" (Aaron Tippin). Based on an average length of three minutes, one million airplays is the equivalent of 50,000 hours or 5.7 years of continuous airplay.
