In honor of Record Store Day on April 21, BMI and Tito’s Handmade Vodka held a private release party on April 18 featuring the premiere of a 20-minute documentary, “5 Turns Around the Sun,” and the launch of two special edition records, Sun Record Company Vol. 5 and Malaco: The Last Soul Company; 50 Years of Excellence. Thanks to Record Store Day and their partnership with Tito’s charitable arm, Love, Tito’s, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Malaco record will directly benefit the BMI Foundation, which supports the creation, performance, and study of music through awards, scholarships, grants, and commissions. In addition to the presentation of a $5000 check by Tito’s and Record Store Day to Clay Bradley of the BMI Foundation, the celebration, which was held in BMI’s Nashville office, included remarks from BMI’s Mason Hunter, Carrie Colliton from Record Store Day, and Zach Flores from Love, Tito’s. Adding to the festivities was Sparkle City Disco who spun vinyl as guests enjoyed cocktails provided by Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
