BMI Songwriters Give Back to Ohio Breweries
From August 10-21, BMI proudly partnered with the Ohio Craft Brewers Association on a tour that brought six Nashville songwriters to breweries in 11 cities and towns across the Buckeye state. The purpose of the tour was to give back to the many breweries in Ohio that support BMI songwriters through the licensing fees they pay, to shine a light on the craft of songwriting and to show the power of live music in driving traffic to taprooms and brewpubs. The BMI songwriters who participated (Hugh Mitchell, Jason White, Even Stevens, Aaron Barker, Will Bowen and Earl Bud Lee) collectively have written # 1 songs for country superstars including Garth Brooks, Eddie Rabbitt, Kenny Rogers, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton and Lonestar. The tour made stops at Rivertown Brewing Co, Brewdog, Royal Docks Brewing, Crooked Handle Brewing, Warped Wing Brewery, Grove City Brewing, Zaftig Brewing, Combustion Brewing, Roundhouse Depot Brewing, The Laird Arcade Brewery, Railroad Brewing and Lockport Brewery.
