The Listening Room Cafe Early Show 
to Benefit Musicians on Call
Single Show Tickets Available at Door of Most Venues 

Vince Gill, Leslie Satcher, Bobby Tomberlin and Bill Anderson at the Station Inn Thursday night.

The third night of the 23rd Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival Presented by Regions Bank is in the books, and the anticipation is building for even more exciting entertainment this evening.

Each year, NSAI donates the door proceeds from one Tin Pan South show to a specific charity, and tonight fans will have the opportunity to see Ashley Gorley, Chris DeStefano and Rodney Clawson perform their hits at The Listening Room Cafe early show in a benefit for Musicians On Call. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $20.

Former "American Idol" judge and hit songwriter Kara DioGuardi will join Jeff Cohen, Sacha Skarbek and Jamie Scott at The Listening Room Cafe late show, and Tin Pan South's newest venues, The Sutler and Blue Bar will host some of the hottest songwriters in the business at both 6:30 and 9:30pm shows tonight.

Any show with Bob DiPiero at the helm is guaranteed to solicit gut-wrenching laughter, and he will host Brandon Kinney, Tina Parol, Jason Gantt and Greylan James at the Hard Rock Cafe late show. The intimate Douglas Corner Cafe has seen several sellouts this week, and fans seeking admission at the door of any venue are urged to arrive early.
