Nashville, Tennessee, June 16, 2015: On Monday, June 15th, ASCAP hosted a #1 party in honor of the songwriters behind "Say You Do," Dierks Bentley's 13th chart-topping hit and the first one the prolific ASCAP songwriter-artist didn't have a hand in writing. The PRO's Nashville office set the stage for an emotional event, as songwriter Matthew Ramsey celebrated his first #1 hit alongside his Old Dominion bandmate and co-writer Trevor Rosen, who was honored for his second chart-topper. "Say You Do" co-writer Shane McAnally earned his 11th #1 song with the two-week hit and had an extra reason to celebrate, as his Kenny Chesney co-write "Wild Child" went to #1 on the morning of the party. Publishers Music Of RPM, Rehits Music, SMACKSongs, Sonic Geo Music and Universal Music Publishing were also on hand to congratulate the group, and Bentley's new single, the title track to his multi-platinum CMA, ACM and Grammy-nominated album RISER (Capitol Records), was released to radio the day of the party.
