This November, we will return to Old Cigar Warehouse in downtown Greenville for our 10th annual Songwriters in the Round event. This intimate evening, presented by Elliott Davis,  begins at 7:00 PM and features four Nashville songwriters who will be performing their own music while telling the stories behind their biggest hits.  

Tickets are available now.
To purchase Young Benefactor tickets, please contact Rowe Carenen: 864.282.1570 rowe.carenen@gsafoundation.net.

This year's line-up includes:

Hannah Dasher, a Nashville transplant by way of Coastal Georgia with a dream and a six string. Hannah brings a powerful voice and personality to her songwriting. Dasher recently celebrated her first songwriting cut on Brad Paisley’s new Love and War album with the song “Go to Bed Early,” which also features Dasher on background vocals. Currently writing for Sony/ATV Nashville and Two Black Dogs Publishing, Dasher is an exciting performer and songwriter with a unique style that arouses thoughts of Dolly, Aretha, Eric Church and Tom Petty all in one.

Phillip Lammonds, a North Carolina native, began writing songs just after college when he formed The Blue Dogs. As The Blue Dogs rose in popularity, performing across the country, Lammonds began to notice the types of songs that moved audiences, and continued to sharpen his skills. He has written songs with or for artists like Darius Rucker, Lee Brice, Edwin McCain, Blake Shelton, Craig Morgan, Josh Turner and Hootie and the Blowfish, among others.

Brice Long, a native of Hopkinsville, KY. Brice has enjoyed a successful 25 year music career. As a songwriter he has had cuts with Garth Brooks, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, Hank Williams Jr, Randy Houser, Josh Turner, Reba McEntire, Gary Allan, Chris Young,  Jon Pardi, The Grascals, Casey James, Darryl Worley, Randy Travis, Craig Campbell, Gretchen Wilson, John Michael Montgomery, Porter Wagoner and many more. Brice’s songwriting hits include the #1 singles “Heartache On The Dance Floor” by Jon Pardi and “Nothing On But The Radio” by Gary Allan. Randy Houser’s “Like a Cowboy”, a song that also garnered Brice a CMA nomination for Song of the Year. Other recent chart toppers are Randy Houser’s debut single, “Anything Goes”, “Today” from Gary Allan, Casey James’ “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night” and Jon Pardi’s, “What I Can’t Put Down”.

Tyler Reeve, an Alabama native grew up watching his uncle play guitar and singing at the family’s beach house. He began playing cover gigs at bars while attending college in Florida and recorded his first record in a lightening span of two weeks. His country music journey was featured on ABC’s Emmy nominated series “Hitting the Right Note”.  He co-wrote such unforgettable songs  as “Whiskey on my Breath” (Love & Theft), “I Got Away with You” (Luke Combs) and “In Case You Didn’t Know” (Brett Young).
