Grammy Award Winning Songwriter to Perform at FRLA Music Licensing Event in Tampa

(Tampa, Fla.) – The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) is proud to host grammy award winning songwriter, Frank Myers, at the “Essentials of Music Licensing” scheduled for Wednesday, March 30, 2016. Presented by FRLA’s Hillsborough and Pinellas Chapters at the Chart House in Tampa, the event is designed as an expert educational and entertaining session on how to use music licensing to protect local businesses. The focus will be on when a restaurant or venue needs a public performance license and how copyright licensing fees are determined. The special performance is presented by BMI, a global leader in music rights management.

At the event, Myers will play his biggest hits and share the stories behind the songs he wrote, including: John Michael Montgomery’s “I Swear,” Crystal Gayle and Eddie Rabbitt’s “You and I,” and Lonestar’s “I’m Already There.” Myers moved to Nashville in 1981 to pursue a career in music as a band leader, road manager and lead guitarist for Eddy Raven. With more than 50 songs recorded by country and pop artists, he has 12 number one hits and 20 top tens.
