-- Grammy-award winning songwriters brought a little bit of Nashville to Palm Coast during the 3-day Palm Coast Songwriters Festival May 3-5. Nearly 1,000-music lovers were treated to the stories behind some of the most recognizable country music songs of today and yesteryear at the festival. Performed by the artists who crafted their lyrics, the 14 Nashville songwriters, including Hall of Fame Songwriter Jeffrey Steele, opened up and offered a glimpse into their lives; sharing what inspired them to write each song they had crafted over the years. The second year music festival attracted dozens of out of town visitors as well as nearly 1,000 people during the three days.
"Our songwriters festival is a buzz in Nashville," said committee chair Garry Lubi. "The 14 songwriters that we hosted are talking about the incredible hospitality they received at Hammock Beach Resort, what a great city Palm Coast is to visit, and how we had two great locations that served as excellent venues," Garry added. "It was a town effort to show off our best and that was certainly accomplished – attendees can't wait to come back next year and bring more of their fellow artists and friends. Plus our visitors from other cities and states plan to bring back others for next year's show" said Garry.
The songwriters performed award-winning, chart topping songs over the three-day period at the Daytona State College Palm Coast Amphitheater as well as the Palm Coast Arts Foundation venue.
