Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris To Lead BMI’s Fifth Annual Maui Songwriters Festival

BMI’s fifth annual Maui Songwriters Festival is set for Dec. 5-7. Miranda Lambert will return for a second year and will headline, with support from Maren Morris.

Randy Houser will return to the festival along with country rocker Lukas Nelson. Rounding out the lineup are country hitmaker Dustin Lynch, Kevin Griffin from Better Than Ezra, singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas, and local favorites Lily Meola and Tavana.

Top songwriters featured over the three-day festival include country music hitmakers Tim Nichols, Natalie Hemby, Luke Dick, and BMI ICON Bob DiPiero. Also joining the festival will be up-and-comers Kassi Ashton, Alex Hall and Roman Alexander.

“I had such a great time at BMI’s Maui Songwriters Festival last year and can’t wait to be part of it again this December,” says Lambert. “I love that we can all come together and celebrate songwriters in such a beautiful place.”

“I am thrilled to be returning to the Maui Songwriters Festival this year. I first attended two years ago and fell in love with the island,” added Morris. “BMI has such a great track record for bringing talent to this festival and it’s such a unique experience.”

“We are so excited to bring this stellar lineup of BMI songwriters to Maui to help celebrate our fifth year of the festival. We are even more thrilled to welcome back Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris who have embraced this event in such a special way,” says Mason Hunter, AVP, Creative, Nashville. “Attendees will be treated to an amazing collection of talent in the most beautiful setting, and we are so appreciative of the folks on Maui and their incredible hospitality.”
