More About WWAHM
Write With A Hit-Maker, or WWAHM, is more than a songwriting contest. Yes that is the grand prize, getting to write with a bona fide hit songwriter, but we've added a lot of extra value!
Email email@example.com if you have questions.
Write With A Hit-Maker contest ENDS THIS WEEK! (see below for details).
SPECIAL REQUEST TO NASHVILLIANS!
We're going to have a GREAT night of music next week at our Durango Nite at a little showcase club called That's Cool on Franklin Pike not far south of Douglas Corner (on right, kind of hard to see).
Danny Myrick, Bridgette Tatum and Amy Dalley headline. (Others will play too, maybe you?) As many of you know, Danny has been a huge advocate for the Expo and he and Mark Brown and Bridgette Tatum at Root 49 Music are a vital part of this year's SB Expo. And Amy is coming to the Expo in March -- she has a new record!
Come on out and give us a great send-off (last show before the Expo), see some old Expo-ite pals, and enjoy TWO FOR ONE FAT TIRES! That alone is worth the price of admission ($5 which goes to the club for production costs).
Please mark Wednesday, February 15th 8PM at That's Cool on your calendar. Come to Durango Nite!

IMPORTANT: Please read this note about Larry's "Arranging The Hit" special offer!
