The 26th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank kicked off this week, as more than 80 songwriters hit the stages of 10 of Nashville’s top music venues. The “you never know who might show up at Tin Pan” rule held true, as several country stars joined in for special renditions of their hits.

The “special guest” at the early 3rd & Lindsley show featuring hit writers Ashley Gorley and Chris DeStefano turned out to be Brett Young. Also appearing to perform his hit song “Kiss Somebody” was country newcomer Morgan Evans.

Produced by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), the 26th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank runs from April 3-7, 2018.
