The remainder of Saturday was spent in a pair of workshops (Film and TV and Do Your Own Thing) and checking out a couple of the listening sessions. The workshops were very helpful and offered a few tips which I'll pass along shortly.
The weekend concluded on Saturday night with the annual songwriter's round. Three individual songwriters (Bobby Rea, Amanda Williams and Stephen Styles) performed one song each before the first round of four took the stage. The first round included Rob Crosby, Keith Follesee, Tim Fagan and Jeff Silbar, with each songwriter performing three songs.
Rob performed several of his greatest hits, including Concrete Angel (Martina McBride) , Friday Night (Lady Antebellum) and Til the Last Shot is Fired (Trace Adkins).
Keith's greatest hits included Something Like That (Tim McGraw), Looking for a Good Time (Lady Antebellum) and Maybe Tonight (The Summer Set).
Tim performed a brand new song he had just written that afternoon (Checking Out My Wife), as well as Waiting for Me on the Shore and Neither Do I, which he had shared in his workshop on Friday.
Jeff performed Wingman and his huge hit (considered one of the Top 100 songs of all time), Wind Beneath my Wings (Bette Midler), as well as one song to which he did not give the name.
Anthony's hits included Kristofferson (Tim McGraw), Whaddaya Think About That? (Montgomery Gentry), Cowboys Like Us (George Strait) and Chrome (Trace Adkins).
James performed several of his originals, including Ain't in No Hurry, In Love When I'm Holding Her, A Good Time for a Good Time and Pictures of Paradise, as well as his #1 smash Just Got Started Loving You.
Jill sang her ode to songwriting, Something's Gonna Happen, as well as Jet Pack, Good Life and Once Before I Die, before closing with a song about her personal quest, Where is Bobbie Gentry?
The concert was the icing on the cake of an incredible weekend. I can't wait for next year.
