The 19th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank kicked off Tuesday night (3/29) in Nashville. Over 120 songwriters took the stage at nine local venues over the first two nights.

In addition to the scores of top tunesmiths on the schedule, Tin Pan is always full of surprise guests. Clint Black made an unannounced appearance at The Rutledge Tuesday night. Keith Anderson showed up at the Listening Room and former American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox surprised guests at the Hard Rock.

Among other highlights: Tom T. Hall anchored the “Storytelling” show at The Bluebird Café, and Michael Martin Murphey, Gary Nicholson and Lee Roy Parnell performed at the “Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame” show at the Hard Rock Café. Hit songwriter and NSAI President Steve Bogard was joined by Love & Theft and others at The Listening Room. The Eating Disorders Coalition of Tennessee received proceeds from the show at the Hard Rock Cafe starring Dave Berg, Eric Paslay, Sarah Buxton and Jedd Hughes.

As for tonight’s (3/31) shows, “Whisperin'” Bill Anderson hosts the early show at Douglas Corner, and longtime Lonestar frontman Richie McDonald will lead Puckett’s Downtown. The BMI sponsored show starring Steve Cropper and Jeffrey Steele will be at 9 PM at the Hard Rock.
