Kickoff Party at The Red Dragon

By popular request, the Kickoff Party will be held back at The Red Dragon Listening Room this year.  It will start immediately following LIVE AFTER FIVE, so be there for 8 PM for the show to start!  CJ Solar will host the evening and will have just arrived from Nashville with a van-full of singer-songwriters.  This group of songwriters is known as The Band of Bros and is quickly becoming one of the hottest writer groups in Nashville.  You may remember some of them from last year’s festival – Brent Anderson (Sea Gayle Music), Michael Hardy (Watsky/Kobalt), Jake Mitchell (Sea Gayle), Brinley Addington (Horipro), Jordan Brooker (Sea Gayle), Smith Ahnquist (Sea Gayle) and some new to the festival this year – Jeb Gipson (Sea Gayle), and Nick Donley (MV2 Entertainment).  Some of them have had their songs recorded by Justin Moore, Florida-Georgia Line, Brad Paisley, Jerrod Niemann, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan, and more.  And, you never know who will join them…we’re gonna have a host of songwriters in the house!  Gonna’ be an evening of “musical chairs” for sure!  Don’t forget to BYOB…it’s gonna’ be a party!  Seats as usual at the Dragon – $20 regular and $30 VIP for a couch seat!  Tickets on the festival website –
