Here at the end of January of our new 2009, Don and Karen entered the CABIN FEVER PERFORMING SONGWRITER CONTEST sponsored by WDVX radio, 89.9 FM, the Great Smokey Mountains National Parks, and WRITERS BLOCK. Contestants compete on 4 seperate evenings, and the winners from those contest, compete in the finals, to be held February 26, at the Hard Rock Cafe, ( also a sponsor ) in Gatlinburg. Don and Karen entered the contest separately, each of them playing 2 songs for the judges, at different times during the program. Because this turned out to be a very good show, with many great writers, we are very pleased, and proud to announce that Karen won 2nd place, for the night, and Don was awarded the first prize, which will bring him back for the finals in late February. If you are in the area, come on down. It's a beautiful place to be, and Don would appreciate your support. This is a well done, and well respected contest, even though it's only in it's second year. It would sure be fun to win, but we really appreciate the opportunity for Don to play with other finalists, and be part of this event, however it goes. Come and find out! Someone has placed the winning performance on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ekj2zZ4y9fQ will get you there, or go to the links page on this site.
