Opening night of the 24th Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank kicked off earlier this week, and the evening was highlighted by crisp weather and packed venues.

Fans began lining up at 3:30pm to see ACM Award-winner Kelsea Ballerini join her co-writers Josh Kerr, Scott Stepakoff and Forest Glen Whitehead at The Listening Room Café 9:00pm round. Natalie Hemby also joined Kelsea on stage for a duet.  Patrons were spilling out the door of new Tin Pan venue The Country to see Jessi Alexander, Maddie & Tae, Jonathan Singleton and Josh Thompson. The club was equally packed for the late show with Doobie Brother Tom Johnston, John Cowan, Lara Johnston and Paul Overstreet, who added an even more humorous verse to his Blake Shelton hit “Some Beach.”

“Eye of the Tiger” Jim Peterik didn’t disappoint with stories or talent at the Whiskey Rhythm late show with country star Collin Raye, Keith Burns and Joie Scott. Jeffrey Steele and friends rocked Hard Rock, and The Bluebird was wall-to-wall packed for both the CMA Songwriters Series early show and the “Songs and Shenanigans” late show.

In two “you never know who might show up” moments, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine was spotted in the crowd at the Commodore Grille “Notcha Mamma’s Country” show. Fresh off his ACM Awards Show performance, Chris Young took in the shows at new Tin Pan South venue Whiskey Rhythm.

Individual tickets will be available at the door of most shows, and prices range from $10-25.
