Nashville’s Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has once again been canceled. The annual event, which draws some of the biggest songwriters and artists, of all genres, announced the news on their website.
“Due to various circumstances, Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival and its associated events,
scheduled to take place November 16–19, 2021, will not occur as planned,” the statement reads. “We are looking forward to returning in 2022 with a celebration bigger than ever for our 30th anniversary!”
This marks the second year in a row Tin Pan South has not taken place. The event was also scheduled to take place last March, was first postponed until October, before switching to a virtual event, as cases of COVID-19 continued to rise.
“We’re hopeful to be able to do it in the fall,” NSAI Executive Director Bart Herbison told BizJournals.com last year. “We want to make responsible decisions, so we’ll see how this plays out. This is the most responsible time to reschedule right now, so that’s what we’re targeting.”
No word yet when the 2022 event will take place. Previous performers for the event, which takes place in venues all over Nashville, include Lori McKenna, Thomas Rhett, Carly Pearce, Shane McAnally, Jimmie Allen, Natalie Hemby, Desmond Child, Angaleena Presley and more.
