ASCAP Benefits Room In The Inn
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.
