Saturday Headliner at the Music Fest is Ryan Griffin and his smash hits including “Salt, Lime & Tequila” Starts at 3:35Pm
Ryan Griffin – From working on the farm as a child, to co-writing Kelsea Ballerini’s hit “Dibs” to honing his own music, Ryan Griffin has always been about blending pure talent with good old hard work and tireless dedication. And, since arriving in Nashville from Florida at seventeen, he’s also always been about guiding his career equally from the gut and the heart. Since his top-streaming song “Woulda Left Me Too” introduced him as a singer with an unusually empathetic hand (and garnered millions of plays on Spotify), Griffin has been working to release music that finds his unique niche between R&B and country, and between fun and true vulnerability. And now, with three new busbee-produced tracks and more on the horizon, Griffin has never been more ready for this moment.
Sunday Headliner at the Music Fest is Lindsay Ell and his smash hits including “What happens in a Small town” Starts at 3:35Pm
“I’ve learned to care a little less about what everybody thinks,” says singer/songwriter/guitarist Lindsay Ell. “Following my gut instinct, truly saying what I want to say—that’s the magic, the elements that make you relatable and real. Before, I was worrying about writing for radio, for fans, but now this is what I know, this is my journey. And the more honest I get, the more effective it is.”
With her new album, heart theory, Ell does just that, weaving the story of her journey of the heart in her own voice using her arsenal of tools as a musician and artist to give each song the sonic backdrop it deserves. “Theory is the science of music, heart theory is the science of a heart,” says Ell.
he science of a heart,” says Ell.
