The schedules and songwriters for the St. Augustine Songwriters Festival, Oct. 23-25, 2020, are TBA. The information on this page is from the Songwriters Festival in 2019. We will update this page as soon as details are released.
Just like the Sunshine State, the Songwriters Festival is the kind of event that warms your soul. From throwback hits that your parents jammed out to, to your favorite songs growing up to today’s hits, the music played at this festival will make you feel both nostalgic and inspired.
However, as you may have guessed the Songwriters Festival isn’t just about great music. In fact, it’s about spotlighting the songwriters too. Although you may know all the words to a particular jam, we bet you don’t know who the song was written by, written for, or written about. This event presents a chance to really dive into the meanings of popular songs from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. While most festivals celebrate songs in some fashion, this one is more about the writers behind the songs. The festival is presented by Bozard Ford and is a totally free festival with the exception of the Randy Houser event.
About the Songwriters
You’ve probably never heard of Travis Howard. But, we bet you have heard of the song “Heart Like Mine” by Miranda Lambert. To your surprise, “Heart Like Mine” was cowritten by Travis Howard and Miranda Lambert. This unique opportunity has given him insight into the creative thought process during the creation of the song. And then there is Cliff Cody – have you ever heard of him? Well, he collaborated with D. Vincent Williams of Rascal Flatts to cowrite “Down by the River.” Both songwriters and others just like them are attending the Songwriters Festival to perform famous tunes they’ve helped write.
