Several songwriters and artists escaped Nashville’s chilly temperatures to attend BMI’s third annual Maui Songwriters Festival Nov. 29-Dec. 2 in Hawaii.

The three-day festival included intimate sets from an all-star lineup including headliners Eric Church, Maren Morris and Jon Pardi, and country music hitmakers Bob DiPiero, Casey Beathard, Lee Thomas Miller, Ed Roland, Ashley McBryde and Randy Houser.

The event was hosted by Storme Warren of Sirius XM’s The Highway and a portion of the proceeds benefitted Dorvin and Betty Leis Charities, Inc., the Maui Arts & Cultural Center and the BMI Foundation.
