On Friday, we brought another vitual installment of the Underground Writers Round to you. Naturally, our quarantined format allows us to bring songwriters from anywhere into the fold — so, we took full advantage of the opportunity, and showcased writers from all over the country!
Watch the Replay
We mentioned a couple weeks back that the Underground Writers Round would be gracing your screens once again on Friday, May 15. So, how about a lineup to go with that announcement?
This month, we’ll once again include writers from multiple time zones, who will share their songs and stories with you, one by one. The fun starts at 5 p.m. CT, and we’ll be featuring a total of four writers, all in the same round.
Want to find out who they are? Meet us after the jump!
Meet our May Lineup

As part of our Keep the Music Playing campaign, we have no shortage of live streams coming up for your eyes and ears.
Of course, that means plenty of UMC Quarantine Jams. However, it also means another Facebook Live takeover, as well as our May edition of the Underground Writers Round, brought to you virtually once more.
The full list is after the jump. Dig in!
At the moment, maybe we can’t all be together face-to-face. Even so, technology can help us share the music with one another.
Watch The Round
Last week, we let the cat out of the bag that we’re going forward with a virtual version of our Underground Writers Round this month!
The online event will take place over on Facebook Live on Friday, April 17 from 5-7 p.m. CDT. The beautiful thing about this, of course, is that we can invite folks from anywhere to join in. So, that’s what we’ve done.
With that, we’re excited to share the lineup with you. Catch it after the jump!
Even in these strange times, we weren’t about to let a month go by without an Underground Writers Round.
Once again, we’ll bring it to you in the comfort of your own home!

Earlier this week, we were pleased to tell you that we’re working with AGD Entertainment to bring the March Underground Writers Round to you after all, via the wonders of the internet.
With that, we’re excited to give you the lineup, complete with time slots. You’ll find it after the jump!
A couple weeks ago, we had to make the decision to postpone our March Underground Writers Round with AGD Entertainment, citing what were, at the time, growing concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19.
We all know the story from there. However, even though we can’t gather in person, music and community will always find a way!
With events in Nashville and nationwide being canceled left and right as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, we have concluded alongside our partners at AGD Entertainment (Zero To 60 By AGD) that it is in the best interests of everyone — staff, performers, and patrons alike — to postpone our March 20 Underground Writers Round. We find that the best way to prevent worsening the outbreak is to prevent it from entering the building, and there are a lot of unknowns about who might currently be carrying the virus. We are gutted that we have to do this, especially considering the charitable nature of this month’s event, but we do feel it is the responsible decision for all involved.
We will be rescheduling all of these performers in conjunction with AGD Entertainment at a future round to be determined. Also, we will be setting up a link for those who wish to donate to Hands On Nashville, whose disaster recovery efforts from the March 3 tornadoes still continue.
We appreciate your understanding, and hope to be able to return to Douglas Corner Cafe for our next scheduled round on Friday, April 17.
