Some of the featured acts include Elle King, The Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose), Jack Ingram, Jelly Roll, Raul Malo, Michael Ray, Robert Randolph, Rivers Rutherford, Jeffrey Steele, Mitchell Tenpenny, and many more.
Robert Randolph performing with the Dylan Altman Blues Band will open the festival along with JamesSlater on Wednesday night during the annual kick-off party at the Ocean Key Resort’s Sunset Pier, followed by performances by Bob DiPiero, Luke Laird and Jeffrey Steele at the Key West Theater. On Friday evening, Nashville’s breakout sensation Jelly Roll will headline the Coffee Butler Amphitheater, and the annual free block party at Main Stage Duval Street will feature Michael Ray on Saturday night. Other acts scheduled to perform include Ronnie Bowman, Keith Gattis, Kostas, Ella Langley and Emily Shackelton.
Proceeds from the Key West Songwriters Festival will benefit Michelle's Foundation and the BMI Foundation, a nonprofit that has supported the creation, performance and study of music through awards, scholarships, grants, and commissions since 1985.
