ARTICLE: Country Songwriters Celebrate First No 1. Single With "She's Country"

BMI hosted a private invitation only party on Tuesday May 12th in celebration of the #1 Jason Aldean hit song “She’s Country" penned by Bridgette Tatum and Danny Myrick. Not only is this the first country song for both songwriters, it also took the number one spot on iTunes all-genre ringtone chart. Released in late 2008 as a single, it is the seventh single of Aldean’s career, as well as the first from his third album, "Wide Open".

Root 49 songwriters Myrick (formerly of the band Western Flyer), along with Tatum, both expressed genuine gratitude to many people who contributed to their success and believed in them during the awards presentation. Bridgette credits her co-writer Danny Myrick with helping her take her own fiery stage performances and translate that energy to her debut recordings. Producer Michael Knox was also on hand to receive various accolades and awards from BMI and other Music Row Executives.

“She’s Country” was debut’d at the CMA Awards in November and has pushed Aldean’s third and latest CD sell more than 108,000 units its first week—an accomplishment that landed Wide Open at the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and in the No. 4 slot on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart.
