Bluebird Cafe is a magical place in Nashville, Tennessee, where fans get the true “in the round” experience, listening to artists take turns singing songs they’ve penned, songs they’ve loved, and of course telling stories. It is where many artists, such as Taylor Swift get ‘discovered,’ and home to a multitude of talented songwriters. Country newcomer, Devin Dawson made his Bluebird Cafe debut on Tuesday Night (10/9), accompanied by three of his favorite, talented songwriters, Jillian Jacqueline (one of our Swag Spotlight artists), Amy Wadge, and David Hodges.

The incredible team of musicians were sure to make the night unforgettable for the intimate crowd that gathered at the Bluebird; however, the night became even more special when superstar Ed Sheeran was noticed in the audience. Sheeran, who happened to co-write his hit “Thinking Out Loud” with Wadge, treated fans to a stripped-down version, during one of her turns.

Dawson was just as floored to have Sheeran present for his debut, and took to Twitter to express his gratitude and feelings about the epic night of music, “Unbelievable experience at @bluebirdcafetn last night. Honored to share it with some great friends & a special shout out to @edsheeran for the “Thinking Out Loud” cameo. Thanks to everyone who was a part of my first night at the sanctuary of songwriters. I’ll never forget it.”

If you find yourself in Nashville, make sure to check out the Bluebird Cafe for yourself and head over to to see if the artist is performing in a city near you. We caught him earlier this year on the will be  ‘The Long Way Tour’ with Brett Eldredge and Jillian Jacqueline, check out the full recap here.
