The stripped down musical showcase will be held Wednesday and Thursday nights during CRS 2012, from 9:30 PM until midnight in the Renaissance Hotel’s Belmont Room. Playing the Acoustic Alley Wednesday night (Feb. 22) are Casey Beathard, Jim Beavers, Corey Crowder, Marv Green, David Lee, Wendell Mobley and Rivers Rutherford. Taking the stage on Thursday (Feb. 23) will be Rhett Akins, Tom Douglas, Ben Hayslip, and Jeffrey Steele. Bob Kingley’s Country Top 40 and SunTrust are the event sponsors.
“There’s nothing better than hearing a favorite song sung by the writer,” says Kingsley. “For a music lover, that’s as good as it gets!”
Other songwriter heavy events at CRS 2012 include WCRS Live! (with BMI writers Matraca Berg, Natalie Hemby, and Lori McKenna) and KCRS Live! (with R&J Records songwriter/performers Jim Collins, Andy Gibson, Aaron Lewis, and Bobby Pinson).
