About the Songwriters Festival

Just like the Sunshine State, the Songwriters Festival is the kind of event that warms your soul. From throwback hits that your parents jammed out to, to your favorite songs growing up to today’s hits, the music played at this festival will make you feel both nostalgic and inspired.

However, as you may have guessed the Songwriters Festival isn’t just about great music. In fact, it’s about spotlighting the songwriters too. Although you may know all the words to a particular jam, we bet you don’t know who the song was written by, written for, or written about. This event presents a chance to really dive into the meanings of popular songs from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. While most festivals celebrate songs in some fashion, this one is more about the writers behind the songs.

The festival is proudly presented by Bozard Ford as well as several other local businesses.  And, the festival now “falls under” the Sing Out Loud Festival “umbrella”.

About the Songwriters

This year the special event concert is Jewel + Melissa Etheridge at The Amp on Friday, September 27, 2024 (paid event).

Some of the other songwriters who will be making an appearance for 2024 are AJ Kross, Brett James, Davis Loose, Gretchen Peters, Halfway to Hazard, Justin Morgan, Taylor Austin Dye, and many more!  The majority have come from Nashville.  They’ve written AND lived the songs you know and love.

In the past, Justin Wilson is just one of the many talented songwriters who has appeared.  Some of the songs he’s written include “Drunk Me” – Mitchell Tenpenny and “Straight Outta Cold Beer” – Blake Shelton.  Some of the others who have attended the Songwriters Festival to perform famous tunes they’ve penned include Keith Anderson, Danny Myrick, Bobby Pinson, Halfway to Hazard, Andy Albert, Cliff Cody ….to name a few.
