BMI partnered with iHeartRadio in the southeastern coast of Florida to present the 1st Annual Treasure Coast Songwriters Festival featuring 16 BMI songwriters performing at 3 local venues that have been long time BMI licensees. Pirates Cove Resort & Marina and Manatee Island Bar & Grill in Stuart, along with the Marriott Resort on Hutchinson Island, hosted 35 songwriter-in-the-round shows with award-winning BMI writers singing their songs and telling the stories behind their hits. The purpose of the 4-day festival was to shine a spotlight on the craft of songwriting while giving back to the local businesses that have supported BMI songwriters through the licensing fees they pay.
