Jonathan Cain, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer known for his work with Journey, The Babys and Bad English, will perform at the Gatlinburg Convention Center on Friday, February 28 at 8 p.m. as part of the second annual Tennessee Songwriters Week.
The concert will be a night of storytelling with Cain as he plays both old and new music and reflects on his time as a keyboard player and songwriter with Journey. The show is sure to be a highlight of Tennessee Songwriters Week, a state statute organized by the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development that designates the last full week of February to the celebration of past and present songwriters with nearly 100 celebratory events across the state.
This year, the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development has expanded Songwriters Week by adding open “qualifying rounds” across the state. Winners from each qualifying round will perform in six Tennessee Songwriters Week Showcases, including one at Ole Red in Gatlinburg on Friday, Feb 28. More information on the six showcases, as well as a full list of qualifying rounds, can be found at www.tennesseesongwritersweek.com.
“We’re absolutely thrilled about this year’s expansion of Tennessee Songwriters Week, and honored to have artists like Jonathan Cain come to our great town of Gatlinburg to tell stories and share music,” said Mark Adams, CEO/President Gatlinburg CVB. “Cain has influenced several of the hits many of us are familiar with, and we can’t wait to celebrate his contributions to the world of music during his show.”
Jonathan Cain is a talented American musician, singer and songwriter who contributed to Journey’s rise to chart-topping success, composing and playing piano for hits like “Don’t Stop Believin’” and being the sole composer of “Faithfully,” in addition to appearing on roughly 13 other Journey albums. He was also part of the bands Bad English and The Babys, and his current work is primarily Christian rock. Cain was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Journey in April 2017.
