Nashville Artists on Tour

Dave Pahanish is an American singer and songwriter from Pittsburgh, Pa. He has written several mainstream country hits recorded by such artists as Keith Urban (Without You),  Toby Keith (American Ride), Jimmy Wayne, Tim McGraw, Collin Raye, and others.

As a performing songwriter, Dave has toured extensively thru the years winning fans with his unique style of writing, singing, guitar playing and performing. He's a 2-year veteran of the Country Throwdown Tour which included Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Jamie Johnson, Eric Paslay, Montgomery Gentry, Eli Young Band, and many others.

Hugh Mitchell has always been a little unconventional. Raised in Birmingham, Alabama, his laid-back, long-haired Southern roots undoubtedly come through. But Hugh has come a long way from the clever singer/songwriter that moved to Nashville and put together a rock band. Since his debut album Heartbreak Radio, he has discovered a style and voice all his own.With a fresh perspective on the art of sound and the craft of melody, Hugh Mitchell is raising the stakes with his latest batch of songs. Hugh's music captures the gritty, intimate, and soulful writing that he's known for.

The 2016 Tour brings country music singer-songwriters to the beautiful beaches of Northwest Florida. Performances will be held monthly from April through August and are free of charge and open to the public.
