Miranda Lambert
Sony Music sponsored Thursday's Luncheon concert featuring headliner Miranda Lambert and opening act Jake Owen. I enjoyed hearing Jake Owen who performed "Startin With Me" as well as his new single, "Don't Think I Can't Love You." Miranda Lambert really tore things up with "Kerosene," "Famous In a Small Town" and "Gunpowder and Lead." Afterwards Sony Chairman Joe Galante presented Lambert a plaque commemorating Gold status on single downloads and ringtones for "Gunpowder and Lead."

Later that day, BMI sponsored a guitar pull featuring Jamey Johnson, Josh Turner and hit songwriters Bobby Pinson and Paul Overstreet. The annual showcase was sponsored by BMI and Country Aircheck. I just sat there in awe listening to some of my favorite songwriters perform some of the greatest songs ever written.

Texas Singer, songwriter and guitarist Bobby Pinson gave an incredible performance of his hit song, "Don't Ask Me How I Know." Described by BMI as a "gritty and disarmingly emotive vocalist," Pinson also wrote and sang Sugarlands No 1 hit "All I Want to Do."

Five-time BMI Songwriter of the Year and Nashville Songwriters' Hall of Fame member Paul Overstreet performed hit after hit including "Digging Up Bones" (Randy Travis), "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" (Kenny Chesney), and one of my all time favorite songs, "When You Say Nothing At All" recorded by both Keith Whitley and Alison Krauss. With his powerful baritone, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Josh Turner performed "Firecracker" and other hits as well.

Singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson's devilishly good reincarnation of outlaw country ruled 2008. The hit songwriter topped year-end best-of lists with the release of his sophomore album, That Lonesome Song. Rolling Stone proclaimed, "There's a new man in black in Nashville," while USA Today praised Johnson's effort, calling it "on a par with Waylon Jennings' great concept albums of the early '70s." The album garnered three Grammy nods for Johnson, who first turned Nashville heads with his songwriting. The pen behind an impressive range of contemporary country smashes including 2007 ACM and CMA Song of the Year "Give It Away," recorded by George Strait, and Trace Adkins' "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" and "Ladies Love Country Boys," Johnson also co-wrote his own latest hit, "In Color."

Later that night, Craig Wiseman hosted a guitar pull with about 3 rounds of 4 different songwriters performing at a time. You gotta have fun at a Craig Wiseman event. Got a big hug from him. Craig Wiseman has had 18 #1 records; quite an amazing feat. I decided to call it a night.
