'Tin Pan South' Adds Two Shows at 3rd and Lindsley on April 2
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The 21st Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festivalhas added two very special shows at the popular 3rd & Lindsley venue, aptly titled "From Texas to Tennessee" and "Celebrating the Music of ABC's 'Nashville'," on Tuesday, April 2, 2013.
The addition of the new shows brings the total number of venues to 10 promising the best songwriters the world has to offer.
"From Texas To Tennessee"will kick off at 6:00 pm, and will feature Wade Bowen, Radney Foster, Jon Randall and Bruce Robison for a celebration of the bond between the Lone Star and Volunteer states. Separately, these Texas-bred singer/songwriters are impressive; together they're almost unbelievable. Here to prove that is, Foster (of Foster & Lloyd and such solo hits as "I'm In," "Raining On Sunday," "Just Call Me Lonesome," "Nobody Wins"), who is joined by fellow Texans Bowen ("Don't Break My Heart Again," "God Bless This Town," "Try Not To Listen," "When It All Goes Down"), Randall ("Am I The Only One," "Drink On It," "Whiskey Lullaby," "She's So California") and Robison ("Travelin' Soldier," "Angry All the Time," "Wrapped").
"Celebrating the Music of ABC's 'Nashville'" will include Colin Linden, Buddy Miller and other special guests at 9:00 pm. Two of Nashville's multi-talented musician/producers, Linden and Miller, are involved in the hugely successful new drama, working with the cast and the musical arrangements to generate stellar results that support the events happening on the screen. Set against a backdrop of the city's music industry, a large part of that success is due in part to the original songs, written mostly by Nashville songwriters and performed by the show's cast members. The show's soundtrack was released by Big Machine Records and debuted as the #1 soundtrack on SoundScan. Online, fans have purchased more than 800,000 digital singles, and Hayden Panettiere's version of "Telescope" even cracked Top 40 at Country radio.
Tin Pan South Fast Access Passes are sold out, but individual admission is available for both 3rd & Lindsley shows for $12.00 cash at the door on a first come, first served basis.

Produced by NSAI, 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.
