Image634944694518739677The Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) has announced April 2-6, 2013 as the dates for the 21st Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival.

The ever-popular event presents hit songwriters from all genres of music performing at a variety of Nashville night spots. Regions Bank returns for the seventh year as the presenting sponsor of the event.

Sorry if this is the first you’re hearing about this and thought you might like to enter one of your own compositions.  Submission deadline was November 7, 2012 and 1st and 2nd round judging has already commenced.

For the sixth consecutive year, students from Watkins College of Art, Design & Film competed to design the artwork for all Tin Pan South marketing pieces, passes, posters and banners, and this year's winning artwork was designed by Kelsey Goessman.

Raised in the quiet backwoods of Southern Illinois, Kelsey discovered a creative outlet through art. She found a niche for graphic design, and left the countryside to attend Watkins College of Art, Design, and Film in Nashville. In her spare time, she enjoys getting lost in nature, drawing, painting and live music. She is currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design.

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 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.

If you’re thinking about perhaps entering one of your songs into the competition for next year, it is advised that you read through the rather lengthy list of frequently asked questions and respective answers here first.
