“Tennessee Songwriters Week” celebrates the foundation of the craft for which we are known, music. Music, arguably Tennessee’s largest export to the world, is a vital part of our state’s culture and heritage, being home to seven genres of music either born or raised here. This annual week seeks to recognize the contributions both past and present that songwriters have made to Tennessee and their underlying impact on our brand; The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee.
Law designates the last full week of February each year as “Tennessee Songwriters Week” to promote Tennessee’s musical heritage by recognizing the contributions of past and present songwriters to this state.
