BMI and Bonneville Radio partnered recently (March 22) to present the 1st Annual Songwriters Summit at The Depot in Salt Lake City.

BMI Icon Dean Dillon and Grammy-nominated writer Steve Dorff performed some of their biggest hits written for artists such as George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Kenny Rogers and Ann Murray, while American Idol finalist Paul McDonald performed a number of songs from his upcoming project as well as tunes that were recorded with his band The Grand Magnolias. A portion of the proceeds from the Summit benefited Legacy Music Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing music education in Utah public schools.

The day before the Summit, the songwriters paid a visit to Salt Lake Community College where they met with students in the music department; many of whom were aspiring songwriters and musicians.

McDonald, Dorff and Dillon spoke to students at Salt Lake Community College about life as a professional songwriter and what it takes to write a great song.
