Dear Music City SongStar Friends,
Congratulations to our recently announced Fall 2018 contest winners! We are especially excited that we had many genres represented in our Top 25, including Jazz and Rap. And many thanks to everyone who entered. We appreciate you sharing your songwriting journey with us – we do not take that lightly.
In the spirit of trying to keep things fair and equitable, we want to make you aware of a few changes, which will take effect starting with the Spring 2019 contest.
- If a writer has had a song place in the Top 10 for three consecutive contests in a row, those writers will now be a part of our SongStar Elite team. We will provide more details, but our hope is to provide more visibility to those writers through our website, socials, press releases and live shows (with of course no ties or costs).
- In addition, any songwriter who has placed in the Top 10 must now wait three contest cycles before entering again. As mentioned above, Top 10 winners will be given other opportunities to participate in other Music City SongStar events as part of the SongStar Elite team.
We look forward to continuing the celebration of music with our entire Music City SongStar family. Our mission has always been to uplift, encourage, celebrate and promote songwriters. We appreciate you!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org). And, if you are able to, we would absolutely LOVE to see you at our upcoming Music City SongStar awards, which will take place on April 13, 2019 at the fabulous Leipers Fork Distillery in Leipers Fork, Tennessee.
The Music City SongStar Team
