The Country Music Association’s CMA Songwriters Series will host a performance including Larry Gatlin, Terry McBride, Aaron Tippin, and Charlie Worsham as part of Nashville’s Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival on Tuesday, April 3 at Station Inn at 6 p.m. Festival pass holders will be admitted first, with tickets sold at the door for $15 as space permits.
Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers have charted country classics including “All The Gold In California,” and “Houston (Means I’m One Day Closer To You)”. The trio earned a Grammy for their 1976 hit “Broken Lady,” and they have earned seven CMA Awards nominations.
“Boots Off” marks McBride’s first chart entry as a solo artist following his successful run as the front man for McBride & The Ride in the early-to-mid ’90s and his work penning several chart-toppers for a variety of artists. He penned nearly 30 songs for Brooks & Dunn, including 13 singles and their No. 1 “Play Something Country.” His songs have been cut by Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, George Strait and many more artists. McBride co-wrote every cut on his MV2 Entertainment debut EP Hotels & Highways, which was released in 2017.
Tippin’s major career hits include “Kiss This,” “My Blue Angel,” “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio,” “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly,” “Working Man’s Ph.D.” and “You’ve Got to Stand for Something.” In 2015, Tippin celebrated 25 years in the music business and released Aaron Tippin 25, a two-disc collection of 25 songs that includes 10 freshly recorded versions of his biggest career hits, as well as 15 brand new songs.
Worsham continues to receive widespread attention for his new album, Beginning of Things. Born and raised in Mississippi, Worsham attended Grenada High School and went on to study at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. In addition to his life as a musician, Worsham is actively involved in music education and, last year, founded the Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund supports youth in his hometown who possess uncommon talent and desire to achieve great things in the arts. In its first year, the organization has raised nearly $50,000.
