Nashville Songwriters at DPAC

The Songwriters of 75 #1 Songs Performing Their Biggest Hits Live

Behind every hit song is its writers, and DPAC offers a unique opportunity to hear some of Country’s biggest hits performed live on our stage Friday, April 27, 2018.

Great songwriting is a rare gift; at Nashville Songwriters at DPAC you will hear eight of Music City’s best. The creators of over 75 Number One Country hits, among them winners of two Grammy® awards, bring their songs and stories to DPAC to help benefit three worthy local organizations—Kidznotes, The North Carolina Boy’s Academy and Voyager Academy Friends of the Arts.

For one show, you’ll be able to get to the heart of the matter and come closer to the creative process when these celebrated writers speak and sing:

  • Tim Nichols (“Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw, “Heads Carolina, Tails California” by Jo Dee Messina
  • Rodney Clawson (“I Saw God Today” by George Strait, “Dirt” by Florida Georgia Line)
  • Nicolle Galyon (“We Were Us” by Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, “All the Pretty Girls” by Kenny Chesney
  • Jimmy Yeary (“I Drive Your Truck” by Lee Brice, “Til It’s Gone” by Kenny Chesney)
  • Jessi Alexander (“Mine Would Be You” by Blake Shelton, “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus
  • Wynn Varble (“I’m a Little More Country Than That” by Easton Corbin, “Waitin’ on a Woman” by Brad Paisley
  • J.T. Harding (“Different For Girls” by Dierks Bentley, “Smile” by Uncle Kracker
  • Jeff Outlaw (“She’s on Her Way” by Phil Vassar)

Video Screens

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
