I was 11 years old when I started writing songs. The only person I trusted enough to play my songs for was my mom. Before I even realized that she was hearing them, I had found that my favorite songwriting location was the staircase going to our basement. I would sit on the steps with my guitar, a pencil and paper as I crafted my first original pieces of music.
Our friends over at SongTownUSA have just announced a new songwriting contest with some pretty unique prizes. You can't just set foot in Nashville and write with a hit songwriter any day of the week, after all!
