TYLER HUBBARD ANNOUNCED AS CLOSING GUEST AT
NSAI’S TIN PAN SOUTH SONGWRITING SEMINAR
Over 20 Music Industry Heavyweights To Speak at the 2-day Educational Event
Nashville, Tenn. (February 9, 2023) – More than 20 songwriters and music industry professionals are set to participate in the Nashville Songwriters Association International's (NSAI) longest-running educational event, Tin Pan South Songwriting Seminar on March 27 and 28, 2023! This year’s event is presented by Belmont University and to round out the already-impressive list speakers, NSAI is proud to announce songwriter-artist Tyler Hubbard as the closing guest interview!
While certainly recognized as one half of the multi-platinum selling duo Florida Georgia Line, a slightly lesser-known fact about Hubbard is that he has penned over 100 songs recorded by artists including Jason Aldean, Chris Tomlin, Zac Brown, Kane Brown, and his own duo Florida Georgia Line. Hubbard was also a writer on “Cruise,” which earned the genre’s first RIAA Diamond single certification, and he was a writer on the Diamond-certified “Meant To Be.” Hubbard’s passion and honesty with his songwriting ultimately inspired him to begin recording works for a solo project, leading to the release of his debut solo single and 20th No. 1 hit, “5 Foot 9,” which is also certified Platinum by the RIAA. Co-written by Hubbard, Jaren Johnston and Chase McGill, “5 Foot 9” is one of 18 songs written on Hubbard’s self-titled album Tyler Hubbard which was released January 27, 2023.
The closing interview with Hubbard on Tuesday will wrap up two days at Belmont’s Fisher Center For the Performing Arts filled with educational panels, Q&A Sessions, and interviews where top members of the music industry will cover topics including publishing, sync, co-writing, demo sessions, streaming, and more. Participating guests include: Mike Molinar (Big Machine Music), Courtney Crist (Anthem Entertainment), Jamie Rodgers (Essential Music), Kate Shirley (Liz Rose Music), Milk & Honey Musicand Teri Nelson Carpenter (Reel Musik Werks). Hit songwriters Hillary Lindsey and Brett James will be the final interview segment for day one of the seminar, and throughout the event several other chart-topping songwriters will take the mic to share their experiences and advice. Additional participating songwriters include: Kelly Archer, Emily Shackelton, Steve Seskin, Josh Jenkins, Matt Jenkins, J.T. Harding, Laura Veltz, Lauren McLamb, Tracey andVance Marino, Allison Veltz Cruz, and Taylor Cain.
