Love & War in Texas’ 2019 Rusty Wier singer/songwriter challenge finished up its Round 2 with pizzazz that only Texas songwriters can accomplish and that Texas music fans can 100 percent appreciate.

March 24 marked that third and final week of Round 2, with James Lann, Harley Dale Brown, Saille Branch, Nick Flint, Jared Thomas, and Larry Martin sharing four of their original songs, song-swap style. They were not just competing against one another, but also against all those in Weeks 1 and 2 of this round, with all their total scores from the six music-expert judges combined and listed in order from highest score to determine which of these 18 musicians would move into the semi-finals.

All musicians enter and move through this contest each year with a “let’s win” attitude, or more of a “let’s be friends” frame of mind. Some have entered it every year since its inception in 2011.

The ultimate winner receives a 3-song EP recorded, mixed and mastered at WarHorse Studios in Princeton and a feature article in a future issue of Buddy Magazine.
