ASCAP featured several showcases in July to spotlight songwriters and raise awareness for Nashville hospitality and shelter organization Room In The Inn. Inspired by Country Music Hall of Fame member and lifelong ASCAP songwriter Don Schlitz, who performs every week at Room In The Inn, ASCAP features songwriters to perform at the shelter once a month throughout 2018, while ASCAP staff volunteer to serve the guests. On July 17, the series featured HoriPro songwriter Sarah Allison Turner and Big Deal songwriter/producer Ben Goldsmith, ASCAP’s Robert Filhart and Mary Self. Earlier in the month Bonnie Baker and songwriters Benjamin Johnson, Ben Goldsmith and Aubrey Shamel were featured at the The Bluebird Cafe, and on July 18, ASCAP hosted its annual benefit with Marla Cannon-Goodman, RL Castleman, Jason Sellers and Neil Thrasher and was co-sponsored by City National Bank.

This past Monday (July 23), Shenandoah performed at Adam Sanders‘ “90s Night” showcase, held at Marathon Music Works in Nashville to benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation. The event featured young acts paired with their 90s idols. Shenandoah, with help from Brothers Osborne, Travis Denning, Sanders, Carly Pearce, Easton Corbin, Tracy Lawrence, and Deana Carter, closed out the show singing “Church on Cumberland Road.” CMT’s Hot Country Countdown was on-site to catch all the 90s-induced tributes that will air in a special episode later this year. The band will also be featured on an upcoming SiriusXM’s Prime Country event this Friday, July 27 at 12:00 p.m. ET with a slew of encore airings throughout the week.
