BMI invited top pop songwriters from L.A. and country songwriters from Nashville to hunker down at the historic Fontanel Mansion in Nashville from January 18 to 22 and collaborate on new songs. The writers held multiple brainstorming sessions in the storied mansion, with special performance of the new tracks to cap off the retreat. The seclusion allowed for maximum uninterrupted writing and networking time.
