This Just In!

IBMA Songwriter Committee chair Becky Buller will be doing a live Twitter Q & A via @MerleFest this evening at 8 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. CST.

She will be answering your songwriting questions and tell you what it was like to win the 2001 Chris Austin Songwriting Contest.

The Chris Austin Songwriting Contest is a major part of the highly acclaimed MerleFest.  

The Becky Buller Band will be performing on Sat., April 30, at the 2016 MerleFest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina.

Proceeds from the contest go to fund the WCC Chris Austin Memorial Scholarship.

Submissions to the contest are being accepted from now until February 1. Full details are online at: http://merlefest.org/casc#tab-1 

Past winners of the contest include: Gillian Welch, Tift Merritt, Michael Reno Harrell, Adrienne Young, Martha Scanlan, David Via, Johnny Williams and…wait for it...Becky Buller!
