2013 Hit Writers Line-Up

“There would not be a Song if there wasn’t a Songwriter.”

Have you ever thought what it would be like if there was not a songwriter… there would be no songs…  Something to think about!

These songwriters tell you the stories behind the the hit songs you hear on the radio and then perform them in the song’s original version.

The Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival consists of free live music by singer/songwriters throughout downtown Gatlinburg, TN for 4 days .

Songwriters are real people simply doing what they do best writing the songs we all love.
