A celebration of life has been set for songwriter Andrew Dorff. Dorff died on Dec. 19, 2016, just days after his 40th birthday.
The celebration of life, hosted by BMI and Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville, will be held Wednesday, Jan. 11, beginning at 4 p.m. at City Winery. City Winery is located at 609 Lafayette Street in Nashville. Parking is limited.
The son of songwriter/composer Stephen “Steve” Dorff, Sr. and brother of actor Stephen Dorff, the Los Angeles native made his way to Nashville in 2003 to pursue songwriting. He went on to sign with Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville.
In 2008, he earned a Top 10 hit with Martina McBride’s “Ride.” Since then he went on to deliver more hits, including “Somebody’s Heartbreak” (Hunter Hayes), “Bleed Red” (Ronnie Dunn), and “Missing” (William Michael Morgan).
In July 2016, BMI celebrated Dorff’s hit for Kenny Chesney, “Save It For A Rainy Day,” and honored him 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.”
