BMI and Nashville radio station Lightning 100 kicked off the first round of Road to Roo, sponsored by MillerCoors, at Acme Feed and Seed on March 3. With more than 250 submissions that were narrowed down to 16 bands, the first group of 8 performed for a packed house of fans who cast ballots for the bands they think should advance further and get another chance to play at Bonnaroo. OJR, Jess Nolan, Roots of a Rebellion and Heavy Sole all made the first cut. Check out photos of all the performers and come back next week to see another round of winners!
