Performing Writer Debuts Showcase at Tootsie's Nashville Tonight

Performing Writer Debuts Showcase at Tootsie's Nashville TonightNashville-based music promotion company Performing Writer will launch a new, bi-weekly talent showcase at Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge tonight, February 20, featuring three up-and-coming young artists, as well as a few additional surprises. Performing Writer is already widely known for its weekly acoustic music showcase at the Fillin' Station in Kingston Springs, Tennessee, but the Tootsie's showcase will be the company's first regular event in downtown Nashville.

The timing couldn't be better, with the Country Radio Seminar (CRS) taking place nearby at the Nashville Convention Center. CRS is the biggest country music industry event of the year, attracting performers, record companies, radio stations and entertainment journalists from around the world.

"We will be inviting industry professionals to our showcase," said David Tygart, producer and co-owner of Performing Writer. "The event will be open to the public and we are expecting a lot of music lovers to walk in off the street, but we think it will also be of great interest to people who are in town for CRS."

Opening the showcase will be teen band Jetset Getset, which was named by the Country Music Association among "Who New to Watch" last year. The Indiana-based group is preparing to release its second single, "Stronger," to country radio stations. The song, which is on the band's album "Saturday Night," is currently being used by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center as part of a bullying prevention program in schools nationwide. The upcoming performance will be Jetset Getset's second appearance at Tootsie's.
