What: Write-On the Nashville Songwriter Series featuring Bill LaBounty and Bobby Tomberlin
Where: Renaissance Dallas Hotel
The 411: Locals and hotel guests hit the new Cityview Terrace Ballroom and rooftop for cocktails, conversation and an intimate concert with Nashville songwriters Bill LaBounty and Bobby Tomberlin, presented by the hotel and BMI.
