The contest is now closed. Thank you for entering! We will be in touch with the winners shortly, so stay tuned!

In celebration of Ken Burns' Country Music, VIA Public Media and Froggy 101 present the Country Music Singer-Songwriter Contest!

We know there's a lot of great original country music in our region, and want to hear yours. Get ready to dust off that old guitar, pedal steel, banjo or whatever your instrument of choice may be, and show us what you've got!


What can I win?

The three best entries will be invited to perform at VIA and receive a FREE professional video recording of your performance, to be featured on VIA and Froggy 101!


So what do I need to enter?

Your Original Song (of course!)

A statement certifying that it is an original song, written and performed by the contestant who owns any and all copyrights associated with the song, along with your Name, Address, Email and Phone. If it is not a solo performance, any additional performers in the recording must be identified.   


How will you judge the entries? When will I find out?

A panel of judges assembled by VIA will select 3 winning songs by August 30, 2019. Winners will be contacted by September 4th, 2019.


I love the fine print! Lemmie see it!
