:roll: Hello, My name is Popcorn.

The fest is contribution based. There are no set registration fees.

Some of you may want to come network and play.

Holler at me if ya..… have any questions or want to brain storm on how to help get ya a little further along down the road.

Hippie love fest musicly minded inquiries only. No sharks allowed.

Trying to get back to that first song in our hearts where it all began.

It's more about the song and the writer. We are all at our many levels in the biz.

Below is a press release.....

Songwriters Festival Ramps Up Again For June Performances

The Nashville SongWrters Festival is gearing up for it's annual production on Music Row. The Big 3 Day Weekend Fest, June 15-17 and the pre Fest Writers Retreat June 13-15 are open to all forms of original songwriting.

"There are multiple stages with scheduled performances and on the spot Create-A Rounds so all get their chance to be heard." Deb Ziems, forth year volunteer explains. "There will be Featured writers strumming some hits and undiscovered songwriters like me. Last year Eddie Jo Neal broke out from the Fest and created a lot of buzz. He came for free cuz he was a little broke at the time. The Fest doesn't let money get in the way of people expressing their music."

Deb continues, "All aspects of the Fest are based on the contributions from individual music people. Participants determine their "Writers Share" and their ability to help be a part of the Fest. The efforts of caring volunteers and "Fest Heads" makes this event different. We have Feel ."

Festival creator, Cornelius "Popcorn" Robertson states, "Non Performing songwriters are also encouraged to come and collaborate with other writers. Networking and Co-writing is a crucial key to getting cuts. There will be a writers table where registered attendees can display their CD's. There will also be informational and display booths and even a collaboration tent hosted by "Keeli."

Another fest feature is the Open House on Music Row June 16-17," states Popcorn. "An open door policy will be observed by recording studios, producers, publishers, record labels, publicists, managers, duplicators, and other music related businesses. Festival attendees will be able to drop in on participating locations and inquire about what part they play in the biz, pick up and leave samples."

Keeli, a fifth year volunteer adds, "Many surprises await. The Fest is limited only by the imagination of attendees. Come to share and hear the experiences of others, network and get refreshed. We try to recapture that spirit of when we all began songwriting in the beginning."

Registration is now officially open. Those wishing to sign up for Fest activities or register to perform can go to the website at www.SongWritersFestival.com for more information. You can also email [email protected] or call 615-424-1491 or 931-296-4067 for more info..Volunteers can also inquire using the same contact info above.
