TWO TIMES THE FUN WITH TYLER HUBBARD
6/14/23

On Tuesday (6/13), EMI Records Nashville’s Tyler Hubbard gathered with his fellow co-writers, publishers, label and friends to celebrate earning his second #1 single as a solo artist.

Hosted by BMI, ASCAP and SESAC, the event kicked off with tribute by BMI’s MaryAnn Keen for the gold-certified “Dancin’ in the Country,” which hit number #1 just weeks ago, as well as the now platinum-certified “5 Foot 9,” which writers Hubbard, Jaren Johnston and Chase McGill, and co-producer Jordan Schmidt were on hand to celebrate.

Hubbard was also joined by “Dancin’ in the Country” co-writers Ross Copperman, Jon Nite and Keith Urban as well as co-producer Schmidt.

Additionally, the night included a donation presentation made by Studio Bank’s music, arts & entertainment executive, Ron Cox, on behalf of Hubbard and the songwriters to For Others, a nonprofit that works to restore at-risk children, young adults and families.

A donation presentation was also made by Troy Tomlinson from UMPG on behalf of Hubbard and the songwriters to Music Cares.

“This is bigger than a No. 1 – thank you for allowing me to have an individual voice. Thank you for believing in me and the possibility to do something that’s not commonly done and thank you for inspiring me,” said Hubbard.
