Previous BBSC winner Steve Desjardins (along with co-writers Charles Harn and Lisa Firestone) won first place in the Country category and subsequently were able to get a publishing deal on the strength of this win. The song has subsequently been placed twice with up and coming performers.
Another previous winner, Peter Roberts and Ron Boustead, used talented 12-year old singer Daechelle for their song Fearless, which won in the Pop category. As a result of this win, they were able to get the song placed in the Bratz movie and (Geffen) soundtrack. Bratz was the biggest teengirl movie of that year. Daechelle also landed a rare developmental deal with Geffen records as a result.
Contest categories include: Rock, Alternative, Pop, Jazz, Country, Rap, Contemporary Christian, Latin, Dance, Electronica, Americana/Folk, R&B, and Gospel.
