Ronnie Milsap and American Songwriter have announced Ronnie Milsap’s Country Cut Contest, which begins today (6/18). Aspiring songwriters will have the chance to compete to have one of their songs recorded by Milsap for an upcoming album due in fall 2012.
“This really opens it up to receive material from a broader range of songwriters, different than what Ronnie would’ve normally been pitched going into the recording of a new album,” said Creative Director, John Ritchie. “We’re going to find an amazing song.”
The judging panel will present Milsap with 25 finalists, and Milsap will select the winning song. The submission deadline is August 10, and it costs $20 to enter one song ($10 for each additional song). To enter visit www.americansongspace.com.
