Tin Pan South Highlights | Thursday, April 7

Gusty winds and scattered showers didn’t dampen the spirits at the packed venues on night three of the 24thAnnual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank.

The SESAC Hard Rock Café early show was wall-to-wall fans, but there was complete silence when Craig Campbell sang his newest single, “The Outskirts of Heaven.” Round partners Steve Bogard, Rob Hatch and Lance Miller were visibly moved by the song. Alex Hall, Jennifer Hanson, Mark Nesler and Jenn Schott captivated the Blue Bar early show, and story after story preceded hit after hit at the Station Inn with Buzz Cason, Wayland Holyfield and Dickey Lee.

Charles Esten led a sold-out late show at The Country with Sarah Siskind, The Stellas and Fred Wilhelm. Former duo partners Bekka Bramlett and Billy Burnette were joined by Bruce Gaitsch and Dennis Morgan at the Douglas Corner late show, and Dylan Altman, Marshall Altman, Brice Long and Terry McBride drew a packed crowd to Whiskey Rhythm.
