This year’s Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association’s Spring Meeting featured a songwriter showcase that included three of BMI’s most successful country writers: Wendell Mobley, Tim James and Dan Couch. BMI brought in the trio from Nashville to perform in front of restaurateurs and hoteliers from across the Keystone State, who gathered recently (5/16/16) at the Skytop Lodge in the Poconos to discuss the important issues currently affecting the hospitality industry. The award winning scribes told the stories behind their songs and performed some of the # 1 hits they have written for country stars like Rascal Flatts, George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Lee Brice and Kip Moore.

The mission of the PRLA is to promote, protect and improve the hospitality industry in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
