McLemore has announced the premiere of its second annual Songwriter Series which is scheduled for May 19. The series is presented by FirstBank and features monthly performances by acclaimed songwriters from Nashville and beyond.
Patrick Davis & Friends returns to McLemore to kick off the series on Thursday, May 19. The Nashville-based songwriter first found success in 2006 when he co-wrote “Dixie Lullaby” which landed a top 20 spot on the country music charts. He has collaborated with Darius Rucker, Jewel, Guy Clark and others and has opened for many artists including Hootie & the Blowfish and Darius Rucker.
Mr. Davis’ most recent creation, Couch Covers, was developed over a series of podcasts in which he performed more than 40 covers while at home due to the pandemic. The resulting collection is a unique take on classic songs, giving them renewed meaning and life.
“The McLemore Songwriters Series provides an intimate musical evening on Lookout Mountain for all who appreciate the gifts of emerging and established singer-songwriters, and those who are fans of good music,” said IV Whitman, Vice President marketing executive for Scenic. Land company. “We are delighted to have Patrick return to McLemore to kick off this series. Patrick’s show was one of our best during last year’s series and he will no doubt set a high standard for the rest of the series. .
Tickets for the May 19 show are on sale now for $55 per person. Due to the limited number of seats available, McLemore strongly recommends purchasing tickets in advance.
The series continues on June 9 with the “Singing Sisters Jam” featuring Lauren Jenkins, Kim Richey and Lucie Silvas in a tribute to women making their mark in music. July will feature Shawn Mullins while August will bring a return of the Sunrise Cuban Band to the stage.
