Only a handful of tickets remain for the next installment of The Nashville Songwriter series, which will showcase Jenny Tolman, Chris Beard, and Joel Shewmake. The live music event will be held at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum.
The series, presented by Jagoe Homes, features professional songwriters based in Nashville and focuses on both hit makers and those searching for their first break. Each event allows the songwriters to share the backstory of their work and personal experiences that shape their songs.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased here. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the concert begins at 7 p.m. Available seating will be marked so attendees will be spaced appropriately. Bar and concessions will be available during the concert.
Irreverent, quirky and entertaining, country newcomer Tolman offers a razor-sharp wit and throwback sound. She is a comedic troubadour with a decidedly feminine perspective, offering savvy wordplay and wisdom beyond her years. Her debut album There Goes the Neighborhood lit up Nashville in 2020. The 13-song collection — with titles like “High Class White Trash” and “Till My Tank Is Empty” delivers engaging snapshots of small-town life in the fictional Jennyville.
Beard found his way to Nashville via Eastern Kentucky. Not long after playing at the famed Bluebird Café he made connections that led to his first major publishing deal. His songs eventually made their way onto local, regional, and international artist’s records. Currently he’s working with Grammy nominated producer Dave Brainard in search of a career-defining, breakout song.
Shewmake moved to Nashville from Cookeville, Tenn., in 2001 to pursue a career in music. He signed his first publishing deal soon after and has since written songs professionally for BMG, Warner Chapel, Amylase Entertainment and BMG/Chrysalis. his songs have been recorded by artists such as Brad Paisley, Montgomery-Gentry, Gary Allan, Craig Campbell, Lonestar, Trace Adkins, Jerrod Niemann, Jacob Bryant and Cody Johnson.
