Celebration Of Life Announced for Songwriter Andrew Dorff
Late last month, the Nashville music community was shocked and devastated to learn that songwriter Andrew Dorff had unexpectedly passed away just days after celebrating his 40th birthday.
As the community continues to mourn Dorff, who is known for penning hits for Kenny Chesney (“Save It For A Rainy Day”), Blake Shelton (“Neon Light”), Hunter Hayes (“Somebody’s Heartbreak”), Ronnie Dunn (“Bleed Red”) and William Michael Morgan (“Missing”), among others, a celebration of life has been planned in honor of the tunesmith.
Hosted by BMI and Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville, the celebration will take place Wednesday, Jan. 11, at 4 p.m. at Nashville’s City Winery (609 Lafayette Street). Organizers are stressing that parking is limited and that taking an Uber or Lyft is encouraged.
Andrew Dorff was the son of songwriter Stephen “Steve” Dorff, Sr. and brother of actor Stephen Dorff. He made his way to Music City in 2003 to pursue songwriting and later signed with Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville. In 2016, Dorff was honored with four Million-Air Awards, for one million radio spins each of “Somebody’s Heartbreak,” “Neon Light,” “My Eyes,” and “Save It For A Rainy Day.”
