In true Nashville style, the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center welcomes No. 1 hit songwriters to its historic stage to perform and tell the stories behind their hit songs on June 11.

The Cultural Center presents, Music City Comes to Madison, an “In The Round” singer-songwriter series that will include four concerts throughout the year. Songwriters perform in a line and tell their stories on MMCC’s historic stage for an intimate concert experience like none before.

The series kicks off Friday, June 11 from 7-10 p.m. Local favorite and Nashville recording artist Eric Dodd brings with him award-winning songwriters from Nashville including: Grammy-Award winning musician and No. 1 hit songwriter John Driskell Hopkins of the Zac Brown Band; No. 1 hit songwriter Marla Cannon-Goodman who has written multiple hit songs for many artists from George Strait to Eric Church and Blake Shelton; Brice Long, 25-year country music journeyman who has had his songs recorded by superstars such as Garth Brooks, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, and Hank Williams Jr. Long’s most recent hit was the No. 1 smash “Heartache on the Dance Floor” by Jon Pardi. Following the concert, MMCC will host a Songwriter Meet and Greet Cocktail Party available for the VIP ticket holders.
