"Winning the NC Songwriter's Co-op Song Contest was a much needed affirmation at just the right time in my life. It was sort of like ammunition against all those people who said, 'Jeez, the music business is really tough, etc…' I could say, 'Look what I did. The NC Songwriter's Co-op has chosen me as the best songwriter in a place full of great songwriters. People are talking about me, talking about my show. I can do this.' And I do. " - Jonathan Byrd, 2000 winner

"Winning the contest was a high point of 2004 for me." -- Rick Spreitzer, 2004 winner
