It's that time of year again, time for another Songwriter Showdown. Last year It was Georgia vs Tennessee, last year we took on Tennessee and Aaron Tanner, from Georgia won. This year it will be Georgia vs North Carolina. For those who may not know what this competition is about let me explain. I pit 8 Georgia against 8 North Carolina songwriters in an online competition which will display on The Georgia Songbirds Facebook page. The 1st round every writer gets to play 2 original songs. They will post their video on a Monday and Sunday I will tabulate up the points. They get 1 point for view, 2 points for likes, and 3 points for shares. It is all in fun, and bragging rights of course. This year though it has gotten a little bit bigger because we have some amazing sponsors. Yes! Weekly The Triad's Largest Circulated, Premier Alternative News source, services 140000 people throughout the Triad (NC) area alone. Oden Brewing Company, a family owned brewery and taproom, housed in a historic bottling plant in Greensboro NC. Roundup Promotions in Georgia also wrote a nice piece for us that got published in Beat Atlanta Online Magazine.
This year's writers are all amazing singer-songwriters as well. From Georgia we have Matthew Schwartz from the band Pacifico, Keven Mack, Al Urezzio, Trey Palmer from the band Sweet Young Twang, Blake Pettis, Scott Little, Rachel Forehand, and Canon Tyler.
From North Carolina we have Dustin Chapman, Ryan Johnson, Rebekkah Todd, Laura Jane Vincent, Sydney Rose, Colin Cutler, William Nesmith, and Emily Stewart.
I also just confirmed that the final 4 will get to play live on The Socially Distant Festival, which has 178k members. Exciting times for the Georgia Songbirds. I want to thank all of you for being a part of this journey which has been going on for 2 years. It's hard to believe, how time flies when you're having fun.
