Nashville’s Tin Pan South Festival Postponed in Response to Tornado, Coronavirus Spread

Annual songwriters festival will look to reschedule for summer

Nashville’s Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has postponed its 2020 incarnation following the destructive tornado that hit town earlier in the week and amid rising concerns over the spread of coronavirus, which was recently confirmed in a Tennessee resident. The annual celebration of songwriting talent from Music City and beyond was set for March 23rd to 28th and will now look to reschedule events for summer.

“We feel this is the responsible decision, and it is supported by Tin Pan venues and sponsors involved in the festival,” Nashville Songwriters Association International executive director Bart Herbison said in a statement. “We want to thank everyone who had planned to participate in or attend the festival, and appreciate the support in rescheduling it.”
