LJT Songwriter Showcase opening up for tryouts soon

| January 16, 2019 | Reply

One more songwriter contest is on the horizon.

Larry Joe Taylor’s 7th yearly Songwriter Showcase begins Monday, March 4, at T-Bird’s Garage Pub on LJT’s Melody Mountain Ranch in Stephenville. This contest will run every Monday until the finals on April 15, just shortly before this year’s Texas Music Festival begins on April 22.

To enter, submit, via email, an acoustic solo or duo video of two original or co-written songs to ljtmusicfest@gmail.com by Friday, Feb. 22. These can be cell phone recorded videos, and cannot be either produced or non-acoustic submissions, because all the showcase performances are acoustic. The team at LJT is looking for acoustic sound, songwriting quality, and overall performance. The reasons for that are outlined below.

Of all the submissions, the team will select five songwriters for each round, and there will be a 1st and a 2nd place chosen each week to go into the semi-finals. There will also be a wild-card to go into the final round as well.

Assigned performances will all be on Mondays, March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1, with the semi-finals on April 8, and the finals will be April 15.

Now, here’s even more good news!

Prizes include, but not limited to, a spot on the acoustic stage at the April LJT Texas Music Festival, and also a slot on the 2020 LJT Coastin’ & Cruisin’ Songwriters Cruise. And just an observation on my part, but Larry Joe seems to be very loyal to his past winners, they often show up again at future festivals. I can’t make promise on that one, tho.

A previous Songwriter Showcase winner, Buck Fuffalo, is hosting this year’s events. Don’t put it off lest you forget — enter now.

And just a reminder — Early Bird ticket sales and return camping site reservations are already on sale for this year’s Click here: LJT Texas Music Festival
