PRESTONSBURG – If you are looking for a great time with great people, consider attending Tuesday Night Songwriters Scene sponsored by Prestonsburg Tourism. The ongoing event is the result of a collaboration between Prestonsburg Tourism and 2014 Country Music Highway Road to Fame Winner Jason Goble. The event allows local musicians and singers to come together to perform, collaborate and get inspired. Tuesday Night Songwriters Scene is an acoustic event where performers are encouraged to perform new material in a supportive and intimate atmosphere. The Prestonsburg Tourism Board recently voted to spend $1,500 to record a new Tuesday Night Songwriters Scene CD featuring various artist who perform at the ongoing event. Goble will oversee the project and determine which artists will be featured on the CD.
Songwriters Scene is hosted at various venues around Prestonsburg and is proving to be one of Prestonsburg Tourism’s most successful events and a growing fan favorite.
