PHOTOS: Top Writer Showdown at True Music Room

On Saturday night, eight of Nashville’s most exciting, up-and-coming songwriters had a chance to be named the inaugural Top Writer Series champion at True Music Room and Bar.

In the end, there could only be one winner — and he brought some friends along for the ride to celebrate!

Chicago native Timothy Myles was selected by a panel of judges to earn top honors at Saturday night’s Top Writer Showdown. Myles’ engaging presence and crafty, versatile songwriting was supported by crisp guest harmonies from his friends throughout the music community. All of the above helped him to stand out among seven other talented Top Writer Series #1 winners. Each finalist was chosen as the best in his or her field during weekly competitions throughout April and May.

Those other winners include standouts from an array of genres, including varying shades of pop (Sarah Bonsignore, Cameron Floyd), country (Ava Paige, Landon Wall), rock (Douglas Allen), soul (Brenna Bryant), and rockabilly (Clayton Kaiser), making for a night with plenty to offer for music fans of all tastes.

Following his victory, Myles will receive:

  • Tickets to John Mayer’s performance at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Thursday, August 8
  • Three hours of recording studio time with Battery Lane Music.
  • A publication feature with Underground Music Collective
  • A night’s stay at the Cambria Hotel
  • A $100 gift card
