Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) held its second Rooftop on the Row summer concert last night (June 21) in Nashville with performances from Emily Earle and Aaron Lewis.
Emily kicked off the night’s festivities atop the BMI building with a set that included “Say Goodbye” and “News From Colorado,” a tune she co-penned with her uncle, Steve Earle, and Allison Moorer.
Check out a few pics of the singer in action.
After Emily’s set, Aaron Lewis treated the industry-only crowd to a sampling from his catalog, including “Sinner,” “Mama,” “Folded Flag” and “It’s Been Awhile,” a tune he took to No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2001 as the frontman for Staind.
Last night’s show was the second of five scheduled BMI Rooftop on the Row summer concerts. The concert series was created in partnership with George Dickel Tennessee Whisky, as well as sponsors NASH FM, Yeti Coolers, Texas Roadhouse and Topo Chico.
