Tennessee Songwriters Week Qualifying Round

February 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development is set to expand its second annual Tennessee Songwriters Week in 2020 with the addition of qualifying rounds across the state. Jonesborough will host a qualifying round at the International Storytelling Center on February 15th. The picturesque setting of Tennessee’s oldest town, positioned in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, makes for a musical experience like no other. What better place than the Storytelling Capital of the World to share your stories through song.

Top songwriters from the official qualifying rounds will perform during one of the six “Tennessee Songwriters Week” showcases. Finalists from the showcases get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share their original songs on the historic stage at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. The Bluebird Cafe’s long-time open mic night host and songwriter Barbara Cloyd will serve as emcee at the showcases, and a panel of local judges will select the top songwriter from each event. Six total finalists (1 from each showcase event) will receive a prize pack and perform their original material during the finale event at The Bluebird Cafe on Sunday, March 29, 2020.
