BMI partnered recently (08/27/22) with Federated Media’s WBYT B100 country station for the 2nd Annual BMI Songwriters in-the-round held at the rooftop bar of Four Winds Field in South Bend, IN. Headlining the sold-out show were BMI Nashville singer-songwriters Elvie Shane, Adam James, and Shelby Darrall.
BMI Singer/Songwriter Elvie Shane has celebrated multiple milestones with his hit single “My Boy” which topped the charts at country radio and was certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. “My Boy” is from Shane’s just-released debut full length album Backslider. During his career, Shane has opened for Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brothers Osborne, Brooks & Dunn, and Lady A, to name a few. He is currently opening select dates for Darius Rucker.
BMI Singer/Songwriter Adam James writes for Universal Music Publishing Group and his songs have been recorded by Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley and Zac Brown Band. He recently achieved his first #1 hit with Chesney’s “Knowing You”, which was also nominated for ACM Song of The Year.
BMI Singer/Songwriter Shelby Darrall, a Calistoga, California native, moved to Nashville to pursue her musical dreams. Darrall has co-written with esteemed industry veterans Brett James, Troy Verges, and Emily Weisband, and collaborated with artists including Jake Owen, Larry Fleet, and Josh Kerr. GRAMMY-winning studio legend, Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, The Black Eyed Peas, Vanessa Carlton, Lady Gaga) produced Darrall’s debut EP, Entertainment for The Brokenhearted, which is out now. The debut single, “Love Me When I’m Leavin’,” was dubbed as “the perfect heartbreak anthem” by People.
