Dean Dillon

Dean Dillon

There are songwriters, and then there are poets – artists who magically weave melodies and words into three and a half minute masterpieces. Dean Dillon is the latter. The Tennessee native hitchhiked to Nashville intent on carving his niche in country music and wound up being one of the most successful songwriters to ever set foot in Music City… The rest is history! For more information about Dean, see

In 2003, Gary Allan took Rose’s “Songs About Rain” into the country Top 20. Other credits include “Teardrops on My Guitar,” with Taylor Swift which helped Rose win a Songwriter of the Year award from SESAC in 2007. “White Horse” won the Grammy for Best Country Song in 2010, and “You Belong with Me” was nominated for Song of the Year. She won an ACM Award for Song of the Year, in 2011, for co-writing the Eli Young Band hit “Crazy Girl” with Lee Brice.

Song Dillon

Song Dillon

Daughter of legendary singer-songwriter Dean Dillon, Song Dillon is following close in her dad’s footsteps.  She wrote her first song with her Daddy and songwriter John Northrup when she was fifteen.  However, her musical career didn’t begin there.  As a young child, she realized she could sing while watching and learning the music of Disney’s The Little Mermaid and she hasn’t stopped since.  From that tender age, this multi-talented artist has mastered the guitar, piano and is well on her way to becoming a phenomenal musical force.  When asked what inspires her songs, she stated, “I write what I know and how I feel.  That’s really the only way I know how.”  Recently, Song was signed with BMI which created the Dillon Trifecta along with her father and her sister, Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, Jessie Jo Dillon.

Song has spent the last several years writing with pop and country artists, as well as with international songwriters from Europe and Asia.  Song is currently pursuing her career in Knoxville and Nashville, Tennessee under the tutelage of mentor Powell Hedley of Hedley Entertainment in Nashville.

Painting “Live” at TETWP Auction: Bradley Chance Hays

At five, Bradley Chance Hays got his first pencil and paper set.  At six, his dad gave him his first rope.  From then on, his rope and his pencil became his life – and still are 18 years later.  Now, Hays is a professional calf roper and artist, painting primarily expressionistic pieces of horses.  “It’s kind of a wild duo,” he said.  “Art’s been good to me.  It’s opened a lot of doors.”
