We wanted to share a great article from “Sounds Like Nashville” talking about our most recent Island Hopper Songwriter Fest, where the Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel did indeed sound like Nashville!

The article begins:

Island Hopper Fest, a 10-day songwriter festival in Southwest Florida, returned for its fourth year in September. Living up to its name, Island Hopper is located in three different settings — Captiva Island, Downtown Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach — and includes performances by 85 songwriters beside a picturesque backdrop.

“Sounds Like Nashville” traveled to Fort Myers Beach on Friday (Sept. 29) to attend the final three days of the festival where we caught numerous writers rounds, interviewed several songwriters and learned the stories behind many of their hits. Held less than a month after Hurricane Irma devastated Florida, the festival also served as a fundraiser to help those affected by the storm in the five surrounding counties.

Music lovers will get a kick out the rest of the article. Read it here!

And be sure to save the date for the 5th annual Island Hopper Songwriter Festival: September 21 – 30, 2018. Come visit and get to know the songwriters behind some of your favorite songs!
