The 2022 Tin Pan South Songwriters festival kicked off yesterday with star-studded shows all across Nashville. The festival returns to in-person shows since having missed the past two years do to the Covid-19 Pandemic. The festival runs through Saturday night with some big names still to come including Nashville’s latest new break out star Alana Springsteen, Brittney Spencer, and Maddie Poppe to name a few.
