"Scarecrow" win's Song Of The Year"

Good news, my new song "Scarecrow" won "Song Of The Year" last night for the East Bay chapter of the West Coast Songwriters Association. The WCS competition is a bit different than it used to be. In the Olden days, 3 writers won during one round of competitions, and then played the conference in September. Now the monthly open mic competitions have expanded to Portland, L.A., & out in central CA too, so ten winners from each of the ten open mics win an award (I think it's a Song Of The Year?), but then those ten winners have a finale performance later in the month, Monday Aug 31st at the NEW Freight & Salvage Coffee House. Of those ten, three will then be picked to perform at the conference in front of a few hundred music industry pros and songwriters. Not sure if there's a separate award name for that now, but it is one heck of an honor to play at the Sunset Concert - it's a magical event! Also a perk of this year's round of songs - the year's ten best will be part of a song compilation CD!
