Cruise-A-Palooza's Nashville Songwriters Round

Kick off Buckeye Cruise-A-Palooza weekend and join us for an intimate evening of country music with #1 Hit Songwriters from Nashville. Bryan Kennedy and Wynn Varble will be performing some of the most famous songs in country music... written by them! 

Bryan has written over ten songs that appear on numerous Garth Brooks records, including three #1 radio hits; “Good Ride Cowboy”, “The Beaches of Cheyenne,” and “American Honky Tonk Bar Association.” Some of Bryan’s other Garth Brooks cuts include the most recent “Rodeo or Juliet” as well as “Cowboy Cadillac” “The Old Stuff”, “Rodeo or Mexico”, "Meet Me in Love", "Cowgirls Saddle", and “The Fever”. In addition, Bryan served as the opening act for Garth Brooks performing in front of over three million people in two years.

Wynn was 2009 Nashville Songwriters Association International “Songwriter of the Year” due in part to his #1 hit for Brad Paisley “Waitin’ On A Woman.” This same song also garnered Varble with the honor of “Song of the Year”. Wynn had his first #1 song "Have You Forgotten" with Darryl Worley in 2003 which was nominated for “Song of the Year” by the CMA Awards. Wynn’s songs have been cut by a range of great artists, including Garth Brooks, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley, Kellie Pickler, Easton Corbin, Montgomery Gentry, Jason Sellers, Gary Allan, Trace Adkins, Clint Daniels, Kevin Denney, Tracy Byrd, The Kinleys, Chris LeDoux, Danni Leigh, Mark Chesnutt and Sammy Kershaw.

Also joining the Songwriters are local country songwriters with Nashville pasts Evan Blankenship, Chance Danison and Jamison Lantz.

This event is a fundraiser supporting the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer and the Ohio State Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research.
