Ever wonder how a song is written or created, this is the chance to hear those stories from the songwriters. Tin Pan South, the songwriters festival, will be coming to Nashville March 25 – March 29, 2014 at various venues around Music City. Songwriters will conduct songwriter rounds where each songwriter will tell a story of how the hit song they wrote came to life. Folks may not know all the names of the hit songwriters performing at the various clubs and bars around town but they will know the numerous hits they have had recorded by artists.

This year marks the 22nd annual event and is sure to include legendary performers, some of today’s rising stars and professional songwriters. Festival passes are sold out but each event has a fee that anyone can get in line and hope to get in to the individual shows. Some of the hit songs written have changed the lives and lifestyles that the songwriters had led.

Visitors to the shows could catch Vince Gill, Teddy Gentry from the country super group Alabama, James Otto or Danielle Peck. Others could catch up and coming songwriters like Bridget Tatum, writer of ‘She’s Country’ by Jason Aldean or Trevor Rosen, writer of ‘Better Dig Two’ by The Band Perry. Shows will also include up and coming artists, Jamie Lynn Spears, Angie Johnson or Ernie Halter.

Tin Pan South is produced by the Nashville Songwriters Association International.
