Songwriters festival announces contest

Songwriters have three months to enter The Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival 2012 Songwriters Contest in Gatlinburg.

“The primary goal of the SMSWF 2012 Songwriters Contest is to showcase and bring a broader spotlight to the talent we have here in the Smoky Mountains and the Southern Appalachian region,” said Cyndy Reeves, founder of the festival.

The contest is open to all ages and the deadline for entering songs is April 30. The contest will give twenty songwriters the chance to perform at The Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival on Aug. 23-25.

“Songwriters from everywhere have asked me how can they get to perform at the Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival,” Reeves said.  “So we decided to create something fun and profitable for songwriters throughout the southeast to participate in when we designed the SMSWF Songwriters Contest.”  

The five categories are:  Bluegrass, Country, Folk/Pop/Rock, Gospel/Inspirational, and Lyrics.
