BMI and PNC Bank hosted the second installment of four Publisher Takeovers slated for the summer on July 18 with hit songwriters Casey Beathard, Luke Dick and Jeff Hyde of Little Louder Music.

Before the round began, BMI’s Jody Williams, Mason Hunter and David Preston presented the three songwriters with their coveted “Million-Air” awards, which are reserved for songs that have reached one million plays. In order to reach this milestone and receive an award, the song would have to be played back-to-back for an average of six years. Between the three songwriters, the number of spins they received certificates for totaled the equivalent of 125 years of continuous play.

The next Publisher Takeover will take place on BMI Nashville’s Creative Patio on August 15.
