BMI will celebrate country music superstar Luke Combs, 11 hit songwriters, and more as it hosts its biggest No. 1 party ever. The special concert will take place on June 8 at the BMI Parking Lot in Nashville.
The event will commemorate Combs’ last eight No. 1 singles as the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year takes the stage with his co-writers for exclusive performances of his latest chart-topping hits. Hailey Whitters will open the show, followed by frequent collaborator Drew Parker.
Songwriters Randy Montana, James McNair and Dan Isbell will celebrate their first No. 1s alongside veteran writers Thomas Archer, Wyatt Durrette, Ray Fulcher, Shane Minor, Tyler Reeve, Jonathan Singleton, and Rob Williford.
Tickets for the evening are on sale now. Proceeds will benefit the BMI Foundation, a nonprofit that supports the creation, performance, and study of music through awards, scholarships, grants, and commissions.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Luke Combs and his devoted fanbase to our parking lot for such an epic celebration,” says Clay Bradley, BMI’s VP, Creative, Nashville. “Being able to celebrate eight consecutive No. 1s all at once is a massive achievement, and we are so thrilled to honor Luke and the incredible songwriters who contributed to this truly remarkable milestone. What an incredible way to welcome everyone back to Music Row!”
Combs first joined BMI in 2013 and has since won 11 BMI Country Awards, performed on the 2017 BMI ACL Festival stage, traveled to the Key West and Maui Songwriter Festivals, and performed at the 2018 BMI Country Awards in honor of Icon Steve Cropper.
