You may not recognize their faces or names, but you're sure to know a few of their songs.

Singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams was one of several musicians to perform Sunday in Santa Rosa Beach on the final day of the 30A Songwriters Festival. She's a three time Grammy award winner, and one of her tunes is even set to be performed on the hit NBC show Nashville.

The music festival is a unique opportunity to put a name to the actual writers of songs from local artists all the way to the chart-toppers.

"I think what I like the most is that there's such a wide variety of different styles and the outside venues, inside venues, large, small, and you get to hear so many people that you've never heard before," said music fest attendee Barbara Brooke.

"To be able to come down here and actually sit here with these artists in this beautiful setting, and enjoy the music as well, it's a great thing," added attendee Rita Duncan.

Thousands of people showed up to the three day event. The weekend-long festival wrapped up Sunday night.
