Tennessee Honors BMI Executive

The state of Tennessee has honored BMI president and CEO Frances Preston for her “years of untiring service to the music industry.” Preston, who opened BMI’s Nashville office in 1958, recently announced plans to retire following a 45-year career with the performance rights organization. During its session Thursday (April 29), the Tennessee General Assembly approved a Senate resolution that also cited Preston’s service to “her community, state and nation and to the many charitable causes that she has unstintingly supported.”
