We are excited to announce a fantastic opportunity for our Nashville Rising Song Songwriters! We have secured our own Nashville Rising Song stage at the 2018 Smoky Mountain Songwriter Festival thanks to founder/director and Nashville Rising Song judge, Cyndy Reeves!
The festival is held in Gatlinburg, TN on August 13-22. Our stage will be going on Friday and Saturday, August 17-18. Learn more about the festival at: WWW.SMSWF.COM
What makes this event so cool is there are multiple stages all over Gatlinburg, with a mixture of hit songwriters and up and comers! Plus, fans of songs and songwriters come out in droves to take in all the music and engage with songwriters. This is a great opportunity to get in front of new people to share your songs and be in “Songwriter Heaven” for a few days!
Plus, they have some excellent education opportunities for songwriters to learn from the best in the industry, and co-writing opportunities with hit songwriters! Learn more about other opportunities here.
Our stage will be inside the popular seafood restaurant “Crawdaddys”, located right smack dab in the middle of the action, in downtown Gatlinburg. They have a nice stage area and I’ll handle all the production and emcee the stage. We’ll be promoting Nashville Rising Song of course, but if you want to bring any CDs or swag, or cards, bring them! We’ll also have a tip jar for you, and you get to keep all money received.
