DSE CHRISTMAS SHOW AT SANTA'S PUB THURSDAY DECEMBER 19th!

If you live near Nashville and you haven't been to Santa's Pub then here's your chance. Santa's is one cool place. In fact it was recently voted the "#1 Dive in America" by Maxim magazine.

Santa's Pub is FUN! And we're gonna have a blast as we welcome back our old friend Randy Brooks who is quite the celebrity this time of year for having written the wonderful and ubiquitous Christmas song "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"!! This is DSE Christmas Show #3 for Mr. Brooks!

PLUS a litany of some of the Expo's most talented writers including Amanda Williams, Nicolette Hayford, Frank Maroney, Olivia Rudeen, Rachel Pearl, THE DARLINS!!, Crystal Chandler, Jeff Zacharski...and as many Expo-ites as we can get on before it gets too crazy at the Pub. (Yes it gets crazy busy there late!)

Go here for all the details!

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!!
