BMI Nashville VP, Writer/Publisher Relations Jody Williams and the BMI Nashville Writer/Publisher relations team recently visited Kingston Springs, Tenn. to re-present Country singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet with more than 30 BMI Country Awards, to replace the ones destroyed by Nashville’s flood in 2010.

The replacement awards commemorate classic songs, like Randy Travis’ “Forever and Ever Amen,” Alison Krauss’  “When You Say Nothing at All,” and Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.”

BMI Country Awards are presented annually to the writers and publishers of the year’s most performed songs. Overstreet has published several of the songs he’s written, doubling his award count.

Additionally, Overstreet received numerous Million-Air certificates, which are presented to songwriters, composers and publishers whose songs amass more than one million U.S. broadcast performances. Overstreet’s songs have amassed more than 52 million performances.

Some of Overstreet’s other award-winning songs include “I Won’t Take Less Than Your love,” “On The Other Hand” and “Deeper Than The Holler.”
