DESCRIPTION: Sponsored by BMI, the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association's 19th Annual Key West Songwriters Festival kicked off Wednesday, May 7, and ran through Sunday, May 11. The lineup this year was stronger than ever with Sara Evans, Anders Osborne, Kacey Musgraves, Robert Earl Keen, Kree Harrison, Matraca Berg, Tony Joe White, Dean Dillon -- just to name a few. From classic crooners who've entered the Country Canon, to contemporary favorites that continue to shake up the genre, the list of talent was more impressive than ever. No other festival puts so many GRAMMY, CMA and ACM-award winning writers in front of its biggest fans with FREE, in-the-round shows. Where else can you catch a set by a BMI Award-winning songwriter mere feet from the beach?
