Six finalists from Tennessee Songwriters Week won a historic opportunity to perform at the legendary Bluebird Cafe March 20 during a private event with music industry professionals. Finalists also won a branded commemorative Taylor guitar, a two-night hotel stay in Nashville, $100 gift card for travel and a one-year membership to the Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI). The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development and partners hosted more than 45 events across the state in celebration of the state statute designating the last week of February as Tennessee Songwriters Week.

During February, nearly 1,000 songwriters performed from Memphis to Mountain City. Local judges with music industry experience that served at each of the six showcase events had the tough job of scoring nearly 100 talented songwriters on originality, vocal or instrumental talent, and connection to the audience.
