Steve Dorff To Play Rare Nashville Show In May

Award-winning songwriter Steve Dorff will play a rare Nashville show on May 5 at the Franklin Theater. “An Evening with Steve Dorff” will also include guest artists, who will be appearing during the evening in tribute to Dorff’s son, Andrew, a beloved Nashville songwriter who passed away last December. Steve and Andrew both have songs climbing the charts currently with Garth Brooks and Rascal Flatts, respectively. Dorff’s other son Stephen, a Hollywood actor, recently portrayed a country artist in the film Wheeler, which he filmed in and around Nashville.

The California-based songwriter has three Grammy and six Emmy Award Nominations, over 40 BMI Awards, 14 Billboard No. 1s to his credit, and 15 Top 10 Hits including “Through the Years” by Kenny Rogers. His legendary success extends to motion pictures, television, and theatre as well, and his songs have been covered by Barbra Streisand, Ringo Starr, Celine Dion, George Strait, Garth Brooks, B.J. Thomas, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Smokey Robinson, Reba McIntire, Christopher Cross, Willie Nelson, Gladys Knight, Dolly Parton, and Alison Krauss.

“For songwriters like me, we’re the Oz behind the curtain, who often has written the soundtrack to other people’s lives; they identify with these songs,” said Dorff. “I’ve been recording, writing and producing for so many acts, working with them in a studio capacity. Now, It’s been both rewarding and fun to get back behind the piano and let people put a face to the songs, other than the artists who made them famous on the radio.”

Tickets for the show can be purchased at or by calling the box office at 615-538- 2076.
