Tin Pan South 2020 is Going Virtual!

Virtual TPS

28th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Goes Virtual to Highlight Songwriters Across the U.S. and Beyond
October 20 - 24, 2020 

The Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) is proud to continue their partnership with Regions Bank to present the 28th annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival on October 20th - 24th, 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival will be moving to a virtual presentation of pre-recorded performances from a diverse array of musical talent spanning across different genres and regions. 

“Although the team behind Tin Pan South will miss holding the festival in our beloved partner venues in Nashville this year, we are taking this opportunity to embrace and welcome songwriters from all around the nation – many of whom may not have had the ability to participate in the in-person event – and are taking on a regional approach in order to highlight songwriters from all across the country,” said Jennifer Turnbow, festival director.

Several rounds of performances will premiere simultaneously every evening to provide a festival-feel, with each night highlighting a different region. Appearing throughout the week will be songwriters behind hits recorded by: 5 Seconds of Summer, Jason Mraz, Keith Urban, Lizzo, Usher, Uncle Kracker, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Old Dominion, Jordan Davis, Austin Jenckes, Survivor, Miranda Lambert, Big & Rich, and many more! 

For the first time ever, festival shows will be free to experience, with a link (paypal.me/nsaiofficial) available to donate to NSAI to help support their year-round efforts on behalf of songwriters. 

For years, the Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has served as a way for audiences to discover up-and-coming songwriters and watch legends at work. Since its first year in 1993, the Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has served as a platform for NSAI to celebrate the songwriting community in Nashville and beyond. Past festivals have seen performances by Lori McKenna, Thomas Rhett, RaeLynn, Josh Osborne, and many more. This year marks the 13th year Regions Bank has served as presenting sponsor for the festival.
