Aspiring singer-songwriters dream of the opportunity to perform at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, and for a few lucky artists, that opportunity will arrive during 2022 Tennessee Songwriters Week! A number of venues, including the Birthplace of Country Music in Downtown Bristol, Virginia-Tennessee, will host qualifying rounds for singer-songwriters to compete for a place in the spotlight at this historic proving ground for artists – and spectators are invited to watch the competition!
A panel of judges will choose four (4) songwriters from the Feb. 5 Qualifying Round at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum to advance to the Songwriters Week Showcase to be hosted at one of six (6) historic venues in the following cities: Franklin, Memphis, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Gatlinburg, and Johnson City. The eligible songwriters will be given the opportunity to perform an original work. From each of the six (6) locations, hosting twenty (20) songwriters each, one (1) songwriter will be selected by a panel of judges to play their original work at The Bluebird Cafe on Sunday, March 20, 2022.
