BMI songwriters just wrapped up another Key West Songwriters Festival, now in its 24th year. Year after year, BMI brings some of Nashville’s best talent to the island for five days of music by established songwriters as well as up-and-comers.

The rowdy week of performances was kicked off on Wednesday night (May 8) with a concert featuring Key West veterans HARDY and The Dylan Altman Blues Band. Throughout the week, fans were treated to a slew of free programming as well as curated theater shows including rounds from Big Loud and The Girls of Nashville. The annual street party on Duval featured Sony Music Nashville recording artists Ryan Hurd and Mitchell Tenpenny, both hit songwriters as well as artists.
