Every year the Nashville Songwriters Association International hosts a week long series of concerts throughout Nashville called Tin Pan South. The awesome element of this event is that the concerts feature the songwriters who actually wrote the songs rather than the celebrity singers. Of course, some of the singers are also songwriters, but you would be surprised at how many singers are famous for songs that someone else wrote.
Check out their website for details on the venues and the artists who are playing in town this week, and if you have some time read through the bios and discography of the writers – you will be impressed. this week is what makes Nashville truly unique.
