NASHVILLE, TN – May 17, 2023BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) hosted its signature “Rooftop On The Row” series last night (5/16), presented by George Dickel Bourbon, as industry professionals and fans witnessed top-tier talent from two of the organization’s promising artists, Priscilla Block and Chayce Beckham. Increment weather did not stop hundreds from gathering at BMI’s Nashville headquarters for free entertainment, music and drinks provided by the event’s sponsors ONErpm, Cumulus 103.3 Country, Daou Vineyards, Liquid Death, Red Bull, Texas Roadhouse, Topo Chico, White Claw and Studio Bank.

As DJ Smoke set the tone for this year’s second installment of “BMI’s Rooftop On The Row,” BMI’s Josh Tomlinson and Cumulus’ Elaina Smith, introduced Beckham to the stage where he launched into songs like “I’ll Take the Bar” and “Doin’ It Right” off his debut EP, which landed the No.1 spot on iTunes All Genre and Country charts. He followed that with his RIAA Gold certified new single, “23” that has garnered 145 million streams to date as well as the most recent release, “Till The Day I Die” that recently made its television debut on American Idol. Block continued the momentum as she opened with “My Bar” and kept the crowd engaged with her 11-song set. Highlights included fan-favorites like “Thick Thighs” and “Like A Boy” along with a special rendition of her new single “You, Me and Whiskey,” featuring Justin Moore.
