BMI singer/songwriter Taylor Swift was unable to attend her real prom, so naturally, she staged her own Monday, May 12, and invited Nashville friends to join in the fun. BMI, Big Machine and Sony ATV sponsored multi-platinum / no. 1 single party, while industry heavy weights, musicians and giddy teenagers embraced the prom theme. Attendees donned snazzy contemporary and vintage tuxedos, fairy tale dresses and even comically nostalgic chaperone duds. The prom queen had much to celebrate: Her self-penned hit “Our Song” rested atop the charts comfortably for six weeks, while her debut album reached triple-platinum status.
