Kelsea Ballerini, Kip Moore and More to Play Tin Pan South 2016
Every spring, the country’s finest tunesmiths descend on Nashville for Tin Pan South, the world’s largest songwriters-only festival. The Nashville Songwriters Association International has announced the lineup for Tin Pan South 2016, and it’s chock full of names that country fans know and love.
Now in its 24th year, Tin Pan South has assembled some incredible talent for this year’s fest, scheduled for April 5-9. Among the event's hundreds of performing songwriters are Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini and Kip Moore, who will join classic acts such Rhett Akins and Barry Dean, as well as up-and-comers such as Maren Morris and Mickey Guyton for sets at some of Nashville’s most iconic venues.
Venues for this year’s festival include the Bluebird Cafe, which is often featured prominently on ABC’s Nashville, the Listening Room Cafe and 3rd & Lindsley. In addition to their performances, songwriters will gather for panels and jam sessions throughout the five-day festival.
“There is an influx of songwriters from all over the world here this week who want to be a part of our songwriting community,” Tin Pan South performer Steve Bogard told The Boot before last year’s event. “The Nashville Songwriters Association spends all year educating and lobbying, so this is the week we can celebrate the songwriter. It’s a spectacular week.”
Fans looking to score tickets to Tin Pan South 2016 won't be able to get Fast Access Passes -- they've already sold out -- but individual tickets will be available for purchase at the door for most shows.
