The BMI Nashville Songwriters Tour rolled through Kentucky and Ohio last weekend, with stops at several BMI licensed venues that have been really supportive of BMI songwriters and publishers over the years. The songwriters show, which featured Kristen Kelly, Clint Daniels and Jimmy Stanley, made stops at Against The Grain in Louisville, Kentucky; The Rambling House in Columbus, Ohio; and the Pigskin Bar & Grille in Athens, Ohio.

The tour was a collaborative effort between BMI, the Kentucky Restaurant Association, the Ohio Restaurant Association and the Ohio Hotel & Lodging Association. The tour was designed to not only give the audience a special look inside the songwriting process, but also to give back to a group of venues that have helped fuel the creative process in Nashville through the licensing fees they pay to BMI and to thank the state associations for their longtime partnerships with the performing rights organization.
