"Top Runner-Up, Keith Bailey, Gary Allen's "Greatest Song In The World Contest""

***{ I have lost the article, but this was the notification letter.
Thanks, keith }

Hey Keith,
Congratulations at making top runnerup in my competition! You placed really high this time. It was " If The Grass Looks Greener" that ranked you so high. I didn't hear it all because of a glitch originally but it all downloaded the last time I clicked on it. I told you about the promotion we do before but I didn't want to leave you out this round.

I'm all ears, like Ross Perot and I know what I like :) If you are trying to get your music into TV, films, or to other artists, publishers, managers, labels, promoters etc. you might be a perfect candidate for this promotion we do for runnersup We have limited space so I only offer it to submitters that we both personally like. Tennessee Concerts gets major traffic and we have promoted Dolly Parton's last two CD's and recently Memphis Blues, the new cable cop show, The Charlie Daniels Band, JJ Cale, Lynyrd Skynyrd etc.

You were up against a Rolling Stone, Doobie Brother and Pointer Sister as well as players from Edgar Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Wings. I have added you into my address book so you can see your ranking in The Music City Beat newsletter. We are on a roll at the moment with our last winner Val Halla landing the opening spot for Ted Nugent's summer tour.

Pat Adams of Tennessee Concerts (my contest sponsor) and myself, have started a joint promotion for Sonicbids artists that are trying to get noticed in Music City and beyond. This was a response to all the emails we were getting from Sonicbids submitters to give their songs or band a boost in the songwriting capital of the world.

If you placed in Gary Allen's Best Song In The World or Tennessee Concerts Song Contest, both 5 star rated contests with excellent reviews, we will work with you.

You will be featured for the quarter at Tennessee Concerts, the highest rated concerts and live events site in Tennessee, and on my brand new personal and official website debuting in October, The Music City Beat. You will be featured in my monthly newsletter of the same name which is now partnered with the Tennessee Concert newsletter, covering 50,000 + hand selected music biz folks from booking, labels, managers, writers, musicians, A&R, radio program directors etc. The Sonicbids data base covers 200,000 members as well. After the promotion ends you will be given your own permanent web page and be added to our new Sonicbids Artist Spotlight page, that we promote year round.

Your friend always in music,
Gary Allen, BMI - The Music City Beat

I have tried to train myself to be able to write upon demand, as I have seen this as an ability common to many of nashville's best. Leonard Berstein, once told a friend of mine "That most anyone can perform on any given Sunday, but it takes a professional and dedication to be able to perform on demand." He said this to my friend, Mitchell Tolle the watercolor artist, after Mitchell asked him how he was able to make his performance sound so good every night, didn't Mr. Berstein have nights that he didn't feel up to it. With the above said, our work is as nothing, if our heart and soul is not there, but without the perspiration and hard work, inspiration is nothing but a word upon a page.
thanks keith

(;{) ****{{ KEITH BAILEY ---BIO 8/29/2009 **** (:{,> }}}
Keith Alan Bailey was born in Paducah, Kentucky on Sunday September 20, 1953 to Jewell and Loretta Bailey. The number one hit single on that day was Vaya Con Dios (May God Be With You) by the great Les Paul & Mary Ford.
He was the firstborn of three sons. Although neither of his parents were musically inclined, Keith took an interest in songwriting at an early age. As a young teenager, when most people were still in bed, he was coming up with song lyrics while delivering newspapers on his bicycle at 4AM.
When Keith was about 14, he was invited to an outing at Echo Valley with the Good News Club. Then began a life-long friendship with Mr. Ben Johnson, who he considered to be his closest adult friend and mentor. Through encouragement from Mr. Johnson, Keith helped maintain Camp Echo Valley and subsequently joined the Good News Choral, a singing group and local affiliate of Youth for Christ and Campus Crusade for Christ. They sang many concerts throughout the southeastern United States. He was also very active in the Youth for Christ and the Campus Crusade for Christ organizations themselves, attending many of the summer conferences held in Takoa Falls and Jekyl Island, Georgia. Even after the unfortunate disbanding of the Good News Club due to the untimely death of its leader and Keiths personal friend and mentor, Mr. Ben Johnson, Keith stayed active in Youth for Christ, attending conferences with a Memphis, Tennessee church. Mr. Johnson was so influential in Keiths early Christian walk that he dedicated a song to him named Old Ben Johnson or Roses Always Bloom in the Spring Time.
After graduating from high school, he attended Murray State University with his best friend, Barry Ralph, and subsequently joined the armed forces with Barrys brother Alan, fully expecting to go to Vietnam. However, it wasnt in Gods plans for him to go to Vietnam as the war ended 6 days after he joined. While in the army, Keith was offered a position as a presidential aide, but because he wanted to get back to college and would have to extend another year, he turned it down. At this point, the army sent him to Redstone Arsenal and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama to train for a year to repair radars. After his training, his orders sent him to Key West, Florida to the Naval Air Station there, where at age 21, he picked up his first guitar.
(MY TRUE RACOON ENCOUNTER in the Florida Keys THAT MADE ME START PLAYING GUITAR) One fateful night, about a month after his 21st birthday, he and his friends gathered on an old wooden bridge on old, old A1A on Sugarloaf Key. A full moon was shinning as they sat on the bridge playing their guitars softly into the wee hours of the morning. As Keith sat listening to them play, all of the sudden he noticed a dark figure coming out of the underbrush about 25 feet away. As it got closer, the full moon revealed a raccoon which came up and settled down just a few feet from Keith, apparently to listen as well. Keith thought, wow, this cool night breeze feels great. It must feel good to him too, and I bet the soft music is pleasant to him as well. Harsh music, Im sure, would startle him. I guess music really is a universal language, an epiphany. It so inspired Keith, he decided he must learn to play guitar too. He has been playing, singing, and writing ever since. With a catalog of nearly 100 songs, he primarily writes and plays acoustic Americana and country songs, many of which are Christian or have Christian overtones. He has played in many coffee houses and several churches over the years.
Some of his other experiences include jobs as a radio disc jockey for WKMS FM when he was a radio TV production major at MSU, working as an air traffic controller in Miami, being a movie projectionist at a drive-in theatre as well as serving as a carnival ride operator. These, amon
