The song, which was among 2,000 entries, won Timmons a mentoring session with major Nashville publishers and Charlie Daniels, plus a new Gibson Acoustic Guitar and a performance slot at the Thursday, March 29 Hard Rock Café show with Dave Barnes, Brandon Heath, Brett James and Lee Thomas Miller. For the first time the contest included a Lyric Category, whose inaugural winner was Jeep Rosenberg of New York City with, “Old Friends and California Wine.” Rosenberg was awarded mentoring sessions with Tia Sillers and Dottie Moore.
