Louisville Songwriters Now Welcome

Louisville Songwriters Now Welcome - 07/06/09 11:30 PM

The sixth annual Great Lakes Songwriting Contest is now open for submissions. And entrants get a free on-line course from SongU just for entering.

A longtime regional favorite, this is the first time songwriters from outside the Great Lakes area can enter. There are no categories or age limits, and no songwriter gives up any rights to his or her song by entering or winning.

Eleven songs will be chosen, splitting about $35,000 in prizes. The Grand Prize will be $2,500 cash and the chance to headline the annual Winners' Concert, plus national publicity and various prize packages from the sponsors.

Thanks to a partnership with Sonicbids, artists can choose to enter on-line or by mail. The regular deadline is September 1, with an extension until September 15 for Sonicbids entries.

The contest is sponsored by Elderly Instruments, Broadjam.com, SongU.com, and Indie-Music.com. Go to http://www.GreatLakesSongs.com for everything you need to enter.

Earl Meyers runs the NSAI workshop in Louisville. He recently visited me in Nashville. I was surprised and happy to see him.

I met with Earl and the nsai people in Louisville last month. It was good to see them. I played Annie's CD.

My friend Earl Meyers is retiring as coordinator of the NSAI workshop in Louisville after 28 years. He did a great job!
