EXPO-ITES IN THE NEWS!

13 Year Old Sophie Rose is Making Waves! Watch her interview on "Dishing the Details" here.

Will Champlin a Finalist on NBC's The Voice!!

Amanda Williams Gets a Shout Out from Garth Brooks on CBS.com!

When asked "Who should we keep an ear out for? What up-and-comers are you following inside and outside of country music?", Garth had this to say: "Kim Williams' daughter, Amanda, is an unbelievable talent...I would put her as a blend between something very new and current that my youngest girls would listen to...and the Dixie Chicks kind of sound...very cutting edge...she's fantastic!" How cool is that?

You can watch the entire Q&A with Garth Brooks here. Garth also had these words of wisdom about today's music biz: "to be seen is not hard...to STAY hip and wanted is the hardest thing to do...you have to be extremely talented and you have to want it...it's gonna be harder and harder to be a success in the music industry...not to be IN the music industry, but to be a success...talent is getting bigger and better...to be a success I think it's gonna take more than it ever has..."

Get the inside edge by attending the Durango Songwriters Expo!!
