Postponed because of the pandemic, Music City Hit-makers has been rescheduled for Oct. 14, 2021.
The Music City Hit-makers will join the MSO this fall for a thrilling evening of country and symphonic music. These award-winning songwriters offer acoustic performances of songs they wrote for Nashville’s most notable stars – re-imagined for symphony. The Songs, Their Stories, A Symphony is part story telling, part comedy – and mostly, unforgettable acoustic symphonic performances of hit songs.
Who is the heart and soul of the Music City Hit-Makers? The songwriters themselves. These talented individuals are considered, “the most famous people you’ve never heard of.” The Hit-Makers are Grammy Award winners and nominees with numerous ASCAP, BMI, CMA, and ACM awards under their belts. The songwriters include the likes of Brett James, Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey, Cary Barlowe, Chris DeStefano, Wendell Mobley, Jon Nite, Marcus Hummon, Lee Thomas Miller, Rivers Rutherford, Billy Montana, Jessi Alexander, Gordie Sampson, Kyle Jacobs, Troy Verges, Josh Osborne, and The Warren Brothers.
The symphonized songs from the Music City Hit-Makers bring an audience back to the moment they first heard the songwriters’ hits and breathes a new life into those memories. Songs on their wide roster include stand-outs such as Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus Take the Wheel,” Rascal Flatts’ “Bless the Broken Road,” and Miley Cyrus’s “The Climb.”
Altogether, the show “The Songs, Their Stories, A Symphony” is party storytelling, part comedy, and mostly, unforgettable acoustic symphonic performances of hit songs. Music City Hit-Makers have played over 80 inspiring shows in 25 different states with no signs of slowing down.

This very entertaining and moving evening will be an unforgettable show.”
