In Tennessee, live music is back and in full swing. This August, Gatlinburg is getting in on the musical fun with their annual Gatlinburg Songwriters Festival.
The Gatlinburg Songwriters Festival is a three day event that takes place in and around the beautiful Smoky Mountains. The festival features intimate performances and conversations with #1 hit songwriters from around the country. Attendees will be able to hear great music at venues around town, and wannabe hit songwriters will have plenty of opportunities to perfect their craft, get advice, and meet/write with industry leaders.
Two of the headlining songwriters scheduled to attend are Tony Arata, writer of Garth Brooks' grammy nominated song "The Dance," and Will Nance, a multi-platinum chart topping writer who first earned his fame by writing George Strait's "Round About Way." A complete schedule of events and performances and a full lineup of songwriters are both available on the festival's official website.
Performances will occur in Gatlinburg at Ole Red, Park Vista, SkyLift Park, and The Historic Gatlinburg Inn, as well as in Pigeon Forge at The Listening Room. These incredible, unique venues will make the performances even more special.
The Gatlinburg Songwriters Festival will take place August 19 through August 22, 2021. You can purchase special event tickets and festival wristbands online. You don't want to miss this amazing celebration of iconic songwriters!
