Two decorated BMI songwriters were on hand to help the Rhode Island Hospitality Association raise money for its Education Foundation by performing at their annual “Drink Red Wear Red” party held recently (3/29) at the Biltmore Hotel in Providence. Award-winning Nashville songwriters Tim James and Phil O’Donnell performed a spirited set that included hits they had written for Lee Brice, Blake Shelton, Craig Morgan and George Strait.
