Pop Meets Country Songwriters Retreat Hits the Mark in Nashville

Posted in News on April 27, 2015

Broadcast Music, Inc., in collaboration with Warner/Chappell Music, hosted the inaugural pop/country winter songwriter retreat, January 13-15, 2015, at the historic Inn at Fontanel in Nashville, TN. Trend setting pop writers from Los Angeles joined top-charting country writers from Nashville to create new collaborations and co-writes. Jessa Gelt, out of BMI’s LA office, notes that “Nashville and LA are two very different cultures and different communities, so I feel when you bring writers together, with a different background, a different skill set, and a different approach to how they write music, it creates a whole new sound.” By merging LA pop and Nashville country, these experienced writers were forced out of their comfort zone, ultimately leading to new ways of approaching the writing process. Take a look at the video to view the week in progress and the complete list of participating writers, then keep your ears open for their new works hitting the airwaves.
