Tennessee Songwriters Week

A statewide celebration of the craft that put Tennessee on the map.

Tennessee Songwriters week

Planning is now under way for Tennessee Songwriters Week 2022. A state statute designates the last full week of February each year as Tennessee Songwriters Week, to celebrate the foundation of the craft, recognize legendary songwriters and pave the way for future artists. Tennessee is where legends and soon-to-be greats share the same stage. TDTD, The Bluebird Cafe and NSAI are committed to make sure songwriters can share their original works on stage with other writers. Stay tuned for 2022 plans and find inspiration to celebrate the state’s music history, experiences and music venues.
