Start With Something That's True

TX Top Pick Singer/Songwriter Contest

TX Top Pick Singer/Songwriter Contest

The TX Top Pick Singer/Songwriter Contest is in its second year.  Sponsored by TexasMusicPickers.com, the performance contest is looking for the next Red Dirt music star.

With that in mind, make sure your song is geared toward the Texas Music Chart.  This is a YouTube submission for a single performance, not a multiple song entry.

Contestants will be judged in three categories: songwriting, vocal ability, and showmanship/performance.
