Wow, what an amazing year of songwriting and songwriters. The 2020 contest was especially challenging with the quality of the songwriting and subsequent video performances. Our Nashville judges had a very difficult time choosing five songs but finally did. Here is the list of this years winners. The winner Dave Rummans will receive a recording King Guitar and an invitation to play as a Rising Star songwriter at next years Red Lodge Songwriter Festival.
