Mar 26 - 30
Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival

The 27th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival reigns as the world’s largest all-songwriter festival, and 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 returns for the 12th year as the Presenting Sponsor of the event, which will be held at 10 Nashville-area music venues featuring hit-makers from all genres of music.

This year, the festival continues its partnership with Nashville’s Watkins College of Art to provide the official poster artwork. Students were given full creative license on how to best capture the sense of community, diversity and energy Tin Pan South embodies, and ultimately, the artwork created by sophomore student, Destiny Carter, was chosen for use on all marketing materials for the 2019 Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival.
