This year, Red Ridge Entertainment is proud to present the Music City Song Contest: Session 3, a Nashville-based competition open to both amateur and professional songwriters worldwide. Entries will be judged on originality as well as compositional, lyrical, and melodic content; therefore a professional recording is not necessary. Songs are open to the following categories: acoustic, adult contemporary, alternative, Americana, bluegrass, blues, Broadway, cabaret, contemporary Christian, country, folk, funk, jazz, Latin, pop, rock, singer-songwriter, & standards (no instrumental compositions).

Red Ridge Entertainment, as well as an additional panel of music industry professionals will judge entries. All songs will be given a rating between 1 and 5 based on the above criteria. One Sonicbids artist will be selected as a Grand Prize Winner to receive a fully-produced, “radio-ready” professional recording of their song performed on by some of Nashville’s top session musicians ($2,000 value), one free night’s lodging at a Nashville hotel (travel not included), a complimentary lunch for two at a local Nashville fine dining establishment, and an opportunity to have their song performed live at one of Red Ridge Entertainment’s monthly “Red Ridge Night’s” in Nashville, TN. Two additional Sonicbids artists will be selected as runner-ups and awarded an opportunity to have their songs performed live at one of Red Ridge Entertainment’s monthly “Red Ridge Night’s” in Nashville, TN.
