The 23rd annual Key West Songwriters Festival on May 9–13 in Florida will feature some of country music’s most talented singer/songwriters, including LANCO, Tyler Farr, Robert Earl Keen, Wade Bowen, Bruce Robison, Ashley McBryde and more.
While attendees of the summer festival enjoy five days of sun, fun and music, they may also notice a rebuilding effort as a result of the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, which hit the Florida Keys and Caribbean in September 2017.
To help further the rebuilding effort, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, Morgan Wallen, RaeLynn and more will headline the Keys Strong Hurricane Relief concert during the Key West Songwriters Festival on May 9.
“Not many people know that when FGL first started playing shows, we would pile in to [Brian Kelley’s] Tahoe and head south to perform in the bars and clubs all around Key West,” says Tyler Hubbard. “So this place is a really special one for us.”
“We believe that music is healing and are beyond blessed to bring our Nashville community to Key West in support of the relief efforts,” says Brian Kelley. “Spreading the love to a place that first welcomed us and our music completes the circle in a way. We’re looking forward to being back.”
