Tin Pan South 25 | Tuesday Highlights
Night one of The 25th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank is in the books, and the “you never know who might jump on stage at Tin Pan” has never held more true than last night. Fans packed all 10 venues as the music flowed.
Singer, songwriter and guitar slinger Keith Urban shocked the Station Inn crowd – which included uber music fan and Nashville Mayor Megan Barry – when he joined Cali Rodi, Jordan Minton, Logan Turner and Ross Copperman on stage. Vocal Duo of the Year Brothers Osborne wowed 3rd & Lindsley. Sonny Curtis was his usual charming self chatting about writing and performing the theme song to “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” at the Bluebird Cafe.
Fans started lining up for the exciting sold-out round with Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey and Trevor Rosen at The Listening Room Cafe at 1:30pm for the 6:00pm show.
Drake White took everyone to church at The Country. Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz performed a beautiful rendition of “I Could Use A Love Song” at the Hard Rock Cafe, which they wrote with Maren Morris. Mo Pitney had everyone at Douglas Corner in tears when he sang about his baby daughter.
Each year, receipts from the door of one Tin Pan show are donated a local non-profit organization, and last night Whiskey Rhythm hosted a benefit for SOURCE with Danielle Bradbery, Jaida Dreyer, Jo Smith and Lari White. Founded in 1992, SOURCE is a membership organization led by a Board of Directors and a Steering Committee. Monthly programs are presented to SOURCE members addressing topical music and non-music industry related issues with invitations extended to industry leaders who share their knowledge and insights with the SOURCE membership. SOURCE is a 501c6 organization.
Tin Pan South Official Airlines Partner Southwest Airlines returned with “Surprise & Delight” and gave away a roundtrip ticket to anywhere Southwest flies to two lucky winners at the 3rd & Lindsley late show last night.
All 10 Tin Pan South venues will be rocking again tonight with shows at 6:00pm and 9:00pm. Attendees are encouraged to download the Tin Pan South App for updates, festival map, venue information, news and social media feeds and more.
Tin Pan South is set to run tonight through April 1, 2017 at 10 of Nashville’s top music venues. Produced by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), Regions Bank returns for the tenth year as the presenting partner of the Festival.
