The second night included a ton of talented songwriters and can’t-miss performances. A total of nine Music City music venues hosted writer’s rounds including 3rd and Lindsley, where RaeLynn took the stage. Lindsay Ell, Love and Theft, Eric Paslay, Cassadee Pope and Carly Pearce also performed at the scattered music venues for adoring fans.
Creative Nation hosted the Listening Room round with Ashton. She silenced the crowd with her breathtaking song, “The Straw.” (Stay tuned for more from this girl, we think she’ll be a star.) At that same show, Steve Moakler, Luke Laird and Alec Bailey took the stage. At that same venue later in the night, Barry Dean, Natalie Hemby, Lori McKenna and Tyler Johnson performed.
Also on night two, Tree Vibez Music hosted another round with RaeLynn, Mitchell Tenpenny and even Pope. NSAI’s song contest winner, John Gurney, also had a big moment on Wednesday night. He opened the 3rd and Lindsley late show which also included Lynch, Lee Thomas Miller, Neil Thrasher and Wendell Mobley.
