On Monday, March 4, BMI joined forces with Whiskey Jam’s Ward Guenther to host a special BMI edition of the ever-popular Country Music Showcase series held in Winner’s Bar & Grill. For the second year in a row, BMI’s curated lineup drew a massive crowd, forcing a line of eager fans to form out the door and around the block. Throughout the evening, Guenther and BMI’s MaryAnn Keen remarked on BMI and Whiskey Jam’s longstanding histories together, including Keen’s memory of attending the first ever Whiskey Jam in 2011. The night featured performances from BMI writers Gable Bradley, Brinley Addington, Ryan Garrett, Hannah Ellis, Nick Wayne, Catie Offerman, Troy Cartwright and 641. Offerman will also be featured in Whiskey Jam’s upcoming vinyl project, due to release soon.
