Wednesday evening (Oct 3.), rising artist Teddy Robb hosted a writers round at Douglas Corner Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee. Joined on stage by his buddies Blake Chaffin and legendary songwriter JT Harding, the three took turns playing songs and telling stories of their music in true ‘writers round’ fashion.
NYCountry Swag Instagram followers had a front row seat to the show through our Instagram Stories which gave sneak peeks to some of the most special moments of the night. Judging by the number of messages and clicks we received, we can safely say that Robb has definitely earned himself some new fans.
During the show, Robb explained his journey to Nashville, claiming a little inspiration and curiosity was just the right amount of spark that encouraged him to make the career move, leaving his Ohio home. Kicking things off on a rough course, Robb went through many ups and downs as a songwriter and performer. Through heartbreak, rejection, and dealing with the idea that he might have to settle on music being just a hobby instead of living out this dream, Robb continued to push forward, never giving up, and fans should be so glad he did.
Robb’s debut single “Lead Me On”, written by Robb, Ryan Beaver, Aaron Eshuis, and Matt McGinn was released just a few short weeks ago on August 24th. Not only does the track have some remarkable songwriters, but it’s got some top-notch producers to add to the list as well including McAnally and McGinn, along with Ben Fowler. The song is currently being featured on Apple’s ‘Breaking Country’ playlist and listed on Spotify’s ‘New Boots’ playlist.
Robb treated the intimate audience to several unreleased songs including “Make Me Fall In Love With You” and “Watered Down”. Although Robb’s vocals were on point throughout the night, effortlessly flowing in tune with his band that joined the stage behind him, Robb broke things down in the middle of a song called “Lonely Girl”. As the band silenced, just Robb & his guitar stole the spotlight, a mesmerizing experience and standout moment of the night. Teddy Robb is a name not to forget.
Alongside Robb, hit songwriter JT Harding sang some of his most notable tracks to get the crowd going. Crowd favorites included “Sangria”, the song he co-penned for Blake Shelton, and Uncle Kracker’s smash “Smile”. Chaffin played one of his songs on Logan Mize’s album Nobody In Nashville called “Good Life” and a standout new song titled “Try Cheating On A Girl”.
The artist’s chemistry bringing them together to play a writers-round in Nashville proved to be a prime example of what country music is all about. Keep up with the songwriters on Instagram – @teddyrobb, @blakechaffin and @jtxrockstar to follow their individual journeys in the music industry.
