All About Me

Since 2009 we have had a wonderful collection of songwriters joining us for our contest.  This year's contest will be on-line during the month of May, and twelve finalists will be chosen.  A second round of judges will bring this down to the top three that will be invited to the fest for the last stage.  The winner will receive cash, studio time, a Mini-Taylor, open for last year's winner Andy Baker, plus have an invite to next year's festival.

Songwriter Contest

How to Submit & a few rules

The first round of the contest ran the month on May. Weekly we highlighted 36 of favorite submissions using videos; and next step was announcing 12 finalists for our 2nd round judges.   Now we are blessed with three great songwriters that will compete Sunday at 11:30, and the winner will open later in the day for Andy Baker last year's winner.
