BMI provided the musical entertainment for the annual Association of Independent Metropolitan Radio Stations’ (AIMS) three-day conference held recently (08/28-08/30) in Nashville, TN. This year’s AIMS conference attendees represented 350 radio stations from across the country.

BMI singer/songwriter Angie K performed at the opening night dinner (08/28) held at The Holston House. After her stint on “Team Blake” on NBC’s The Voice, country artist Jake Owen and his team convinced Angie to move to Nashville and helped fund her first single in town, “Real Talk,” written by Jesse Frasure, Nicolle Galyon, Hillary Lindsey and Thomas Rhett. Angie performed songs from her newest EP Sun Up to Sundown.

BMI singer/songwriter Paul McDonald entertained the group of radio station owners and operators during the conference luncheon (08/29), performing songs from his Modern Hearts album. Paul is currently working on a new album and entering the studio this fall to record.

BMI singer/songwriter Leah Blevins performed on the second night’s dinner (08/29) at Merchants downtown Nashville. Blevins performed songs from her newest album First Time Feeling, which she is currently on tour promoting.

Finally, BMI singer/songwriter Julia Cole performed at the closing night’s dinner (08/30) which was held at The Diner downtown Nashville. Cole performed her newly released single “In A Day,” along with “Whole Nother’ Margarita,” “Best Worst Ex” and “Side Piece.” In 2022, Cole was included in CMT’s Next Women of Country class, and earlier this summer, Cole celebrated her debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry.
