Tin Pan South Highlights | Saturday, April 9

The 24th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank wrapped up Saturday night with some of the biggest crowds and most sellouts in the event’s history.

The benefit for Bonaparte’s Retreat at 3rd & Lindsley drew a packed house to see Emmylou Harris host Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Jonathan Jackson, Colin Linden, Brandon Young and special guests. The late show, starring Shane McAnally, Kacey Musgraves and Josh Osborne was equally overflowing. Perennial Tin Pan favorite Station Inn was as popular among festival goers as ever all week.

Produced by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), Tin Pan South reigns as the world’s largest all-songwriter festival. Over 350 talented songwriters performed 92 shows at ten of Nashville’s top music venues. Thousands of music fans attend the event annually to hear songwriters tell stories behind hit songs they have written and perform the songs as they were originally composed. Regions Bank returned for the ninth year as the presenting sponsor of the event.
