BMI hosted a Country Throwdown Tour launch party on May 25 at Cabana, a trendy hotspot in Nashville. The multi-act tour kicked off May 14 in Florida and concludes June 20 in California. The first of its kind, The Country Throwdown Tour features headliners Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson and Little Big Town. The tour also features the BMI-sponsored Bluebird Café Singer/Songwriter stage that provides fans with a unique and intimate setting to hear stripped down versions of hits songs performed by the writers who penned them and undoubtedly songs that they will hear on country radio in the future. The lineup includes some of Nashville’s up-and-coming and established songwriters like Sarah Buxton, Dave Pahanish, Troy Olsen, Brad Tursi, Ashley Ray and more.

Check out what the artists had to say about their favorite moments of the tour so far in the clip from the party!
