The mayor of Nashville, Mayor Karl Dean, was one of the first to officially welcome the Tin Pan South Songwriter’s Festival at the preview party on Tuesday, March 8 at the Rutledge (one of the 9 venues to host the festivities this year.)
Mayor Dean hinted to a recent study published in late 2010. This study, using data from 2007-2008, ranked Nashville fourth in the country in overall “cultural vitality” — behind New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. Tin Pan South seems to be in the right place!
In it’s 19th year, NSAI hosted Tin Pan South Songwriter’s Festival is sure to bring music and the story behind the song to life. Hosted for 5 years in a row by Regions Bank, the people of middle TN are certainly behind the traffic, culture, and revenue this event brings to the town.
News Channel Five reports that, “Over 9,000 fans swarmed Music City last year for the annual Tin Pan South Songwriter’s Festival, and organizers expect it to be the same again this year.”
Tin Pan South takes place Tuesday, March 29 – Saturday night, April 2. For tickets check their website.
