Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan will serve as the main headliners for the 2012 Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival, an annual event in Nashville that brings together top songwriters performing their songs in intimate club settings.

This year's Tin Pan South runs March 27 to March 31 and takes place at 10 different Music City venues, including the famed Bluebird Cafe. Luke will play his show Tuesday night, March 27, at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Nashville while Dierks is slated to perform Wednesday night, March 28, also at the Hard Rock. Along with Dierks and Luke, legendary songwriters Jimmy Webb, best known for penning Glen Campbell's classics "Wichita Lineman," "Galveston" and others, and Paul Williams, who's written hits for The Carpenters and other artists, will perform during the week.

Many of Nashville's top songwriters, such as Natalie Hemby, Miranda Lambert's co-writer on "Baggage Claim," and Josh Kear, who has written hits for acts such as Carrie Underwood and Lady Antebellum, will also be performing at various venues.

Tin Pan South is produced by the Nashville Songwriters Association International and is billed as "the world's largest all-songwriter festival."
