Other top songwriters featured over the three-day festival include country music hitmakers Dallas Davidson, Jon Randall, The Warren Brothers, Jessi Alexander, and Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers. Returning for the second year in a row is Randy Houser, who will attend the festival directly following the release of his 5th studio album, Magnolia, out Nov. 2. Ashley Monroe will be performing solo as well as joining Angaleena Presley and Lambert as part of the Pistol Annies. Presley will also treat the crowds to a solo set. Country rocker Lukas Nelson, nine-time Grammy Award winner Ray Benson of Asleep At The Wheel, and local favorite Lily Meola round out the impressive lineup.
“It is such an honor to return for our fourth annual Maui Songwriter Festival,” says Mason Hunter, AVP, Creative, Nashville. “This year’s lineup is stellar and the folks on the island are always so welcoming. We look forward to once again bringing the world’s best songwriters to Maui for a magical event.”
Hosted by Storme Warren of SiriusXM’s The Highway, these concerts will fill Maui’s premiere venues including Fleetwood’s on Front St., Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Many of these acoustic sets will feature Nashville’s signature “songwriters-in-the-round” where in addition to performing, songwriters share the stories behind their hit songs.
Adding a philanthropic element to the Maui Songwriters Festival presented by BMI, a portion of the proceeds will once again benefit Dorvin and Betty Leis Charities, Inc., the Maui Arts & Cultural Center and the BMI Foundation, dedicated to encouraging the creation, performance, and study of music through awards, scholarships, grants, and commissions.
