This year we will be having the  4th edition of the Songwriters in the Round performance at Roanoke's iconic Grandin Theatre.  The historic Grandin Theatre has once hosted such musicians as: Ray Charles, John Prine, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Bobby Blues Bland, Tammy Wynette, Delbert McClinton the Dead Kennedys and more. We are extremely excited to be able to go into this piece of history and create an unforgettable night of storytelling and musicianship. See ya there. Be sure to purchase tickets early...we are expecting another Sell-Out!! 


Artist for SiTR4 

Josh Shilling

Crawford & Power 

Emme Cannon





Corey Hunley's  style is best described as "southern americana with catchy hooks and clever lyrics about real life."  Corey is also the host of the Songwriters in the Round.

Adam Rutledge- Lead Singer/Founder of the band Rutledge - Started writing songs at an early age, he wrote his first song at the age of 6 or 7 and performed it in church.  Lynyrd Skynyrd, KISS, and Keith Urban are a few who helped mold his songwriting. One of the strengths of his songs is they are "Different but instantly recognizable and catchy. We fit in but we don't blend in"

"JD Sutphin's take on country music can easily be described as eclectic. Formally fronting a hard rock band yet raised on bluegrass; expect the unexpected.  From upbeat sing-alongs to personal ballads, the songs are sure to take you somewhere new yet familiar." 

Jake Crawford is a Franklin county native that has begun to make a name for himself with his power duo group Crawford & Power (featuring Dobro artist Ethan Power).  Jake is able to cover most artist he attempts as well as grabbing the crowd with his originals.  He puts a southern twang and powerful vocals over top his witty lyrics.
