The 24th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank wrapped up Saturday night (April 9) 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 a round with 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.
Fans filed into The Listening Room Café early show to see “My Church” singer/songwriter Maren Morris with Ryan Beaver, Ryan Hurd and Lucie Silvas, and every Bluebird Café show saw lines of hopeful patrons waiting for a chance to enter.
Tin Pan South’s newest venues, The Country and Whiskey Rhythm, saw lines out the door for many shows including a late show with Corey Crowder, Randy Montana, Jared Mullins and Jeremy Stover at the former, as well as the latter’s late show with Matt Ferranti, Jer Gregg, Stephen Saylers and Rachel Williams.

Laughter abounded at The Douglas Corner late show with Mark Narmore, Paul Sikes and Adam Wheeler. The Hillbillies and Hell Raisers late show at Blue Bar, with Shannon Lawson, Bridgette Tatum and Amanda Williams, lived up to its billing.
Produced by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), Tin Pan South is the world’s largest all-songwriter festival. More than 350 talented songwriters performed 92 shows at 10 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.
