For 20 years, the Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank has featured writers whose songs have become engrained in the fabric of our musical lives, and 2013 promises to offer the best of the best. The event set for Tuesday, April 2 - Saturday, April 6, 2013, and the addition of two shows at 3rd & Lindsley brings the total number of venues to 10.


This year's lineup includes more singer/songwriter artists than in year's past, which ups the wow factor for attendees. Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley, hit pop songwriter and former "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi, RCA Nashville's Jake Owen, Sugarland's Kristian Bush, Amy Grant, Pistol Annies' Ashley Monroe and more will be trading arena stages for the intimate venues that make up Tin Pan South.


The popular Fast Access Passes sold out faster than ever before, which is a strong indicator of the desire for fans to see these songwriters, hear the stories behind some of music's most popular songs and see them performed exactly the way they were originally written. Tickets will be available at the door on a cash-only basis for most shows on a first-come, first-served basis.

Produced by The Nashville Songwriters Association International, Tin Pan South reigns as the world's largest all-songwriter festival. Last year close to 350 talented songwriters performed 92 shows at ten of Nashville's top music venues. Over 9,000 music fans attend the event annually to hear songwriters tell stories behind hit songs they have written and perform the songs as they're were originally composed.
