You may have heard us talking about this thing we’re doing back home in Bethlehem, PA next week. The concept: take eight local (or locally-tied) songwriters, and put on a mega-event in the form of a Nashville-style writers round.
The event? It’s Nashville Meets Bethlehem, taking place on Bethlehem’s iconic SteelStacks campus on Friday, November 17. And — as we’re known to do — we’re so excited that we decided to make a playlist about it!
Nashville Meets Bethlehem: The Playlist features a total of 16 tracks — two each from our lineup of The Beautiful Distortion, Billy Bauer (of Billy Bauer Band), Bobby Siegfried (Chasing Daylight), Bronte Fall, Carly Comando (Slingshot Dakota), Chelsea Mitchell (Dirty Dollhouse), Roi and the Secret People, and TIOGA.
In other words, we’ve given you 16 good reasons to get your tickets to the show — and we’re sure you’ll find many more good reasons to be in the building when the big night arrives!
Give yourself the ultimate preview below, and make sure you get yourself to Bethlehem next Friday!
As announced just a few days ago, NashLive! will be taking over Nashville’s iconic The Listening Room Cafe on Monday, October 3 with a special writers round event, featuring songwriters from here in Nashville — and beyond.
We couldn’t wait any longer. Let’s introduce you to the four songwriters who will join us in front of The Listening Room’s brick wall backdrop!
Meet the Songwriters
On Friday, we brought another vitual installment of the Underground Writers Round to you. Naturally, our quarantined format allows us to bring songwriters from anywhere into the fold — so, we took full advantage of the opportunity, and showcased writers from all over the country!

Let’s give you a taste of what Van is capable of, courtesy of his latest single, “Space Between.”
Hear the Single
We mentioned a couple weeks back that the Underground Writers Round would be gracing your screens once again on Friday, May 15. So, how about a lineup to go with that announcement?
This month, we’ll once again include writers from multiple time zones, who will share their songs and stories with you, one by one. The fun starts at 5 p.m. CT, and we’ll be featuring a total of four writers, all in the same round.
Want to find out who they are? Meet us after the jump!

As part of our Keep the Music Playing campaign, we have no shortage of live streams coming up for your eyes and ears.
Of course, that means plenty of UMC Quarantine Jams. However, it also means another Facebook Live takeover, as well as our May edition of the Underground Writers Round, brought to you virtually once more.
The full list is after the jump. Dig in!
At the moment, maybe we can’t all be together face-to-face. Even so, technology can help us share the music with one another.
Watch The Round
Last week, we let the cat out of the bag that we’re going forward with a virtual version of our Underground Writers Round this month!
The online event will take place over on Facebook Live on Friday, April 17 from 5-7 p.m. CDT. The beautiful thing about this, of course, is that we can invite folks from anywhere to join in. So, that’s what we’ve done.
With that, we’re excited to share the lineup with you. Catch it after the jump!
Even in these strange times, we weren’t about to let a month go by without an Underground Writers Round.
Once again, we’ll bring it to you in the comfort of your own home!
Anna Claire Loftis is one of six artists joining us. See the full lineup!
Earlier this week, we were pleased to tell you that we’re working with AGD Entertainment to bring the March Underground Writers Round to you after all, via the wonders of the internet.
With that, we’re excited to give you the lineup, complete with time slots. You’ll find it after the jump!
