Tennessee is home of scores of legendary songwriters, whose work and craft are celebrated world-wide.
From Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, creators of Rocky Top, to Issac Hayes and David Porter’s soul sounds of Memphis and A.P. and Mother Maybelle Carter’s foundational Appalachian ballads, songwriters working in Tennessee lead the world to this day.
To preserve their legacy, a state statute designates the last full week of February as “Tennessee Songwriters Week,” to celebrate the foundation of the craft, recognize past and present songwriters and pave the way for future artists.
Hear tomorrows hits and enjoy a performance from last years Knoxville winners Travis Bigwood and The Lonesome Doves. Winner of Bijou Showcase gets to compete in the statewide final round at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
The Tennessee Songwriters Week Showcase at the Bijou Theatre is presented in part by Visit Knoxville.
