Jenni Mansfield Peal our DSA 2021 Song Contest Americana Category judge emailed this story to me about Townes Van Zandt judging songs at Kerrville Music Festival: "... Townes was asked to be a judge for the New Folk song writing contest at Kerrville Folk Festival on year. Listening to the contestants, he was marking his judging sheet with numbers like 899 and 121, “a million” and such. A fellow judge sitting nearby asked what the numbers meant. Townes replied the those were the number of songs that that person would have to write before they wrote a good one." 😂😂😂

Wrote this a few years ago. But, help 'em, Lord- Here comes trouble again. Never got a chance to record or share it with any Louisiana refugees or New Orleans friends. Maybe someday. (Could end up as rock or country or a maybe blues shuffle.)

Greetings Dallas Songwriters! I used to own Angela's at the Crosswalk in downtown Plano, where we hosted an open mic night every Monday. Many of you performed there and were loyal customers. Thanks so much for your patronage! I'm now running for Plano City Council Place 7 and I would appreciate your support! If you live in Plano, please vote for me! If you don't, please ask your friends in Plano to vote for me! Early voting will continue next Monday & Tuesday from 7am to 7pm. Election day is May 1st. I'm in a REALLY crowded race and I will need a great voter turnout to avoid a runoff. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to me by phone - 214-649-8171, email [email protected] or by PM on FB. Thanks in advance for your support and helping me GET OUT THE VOTE! Sending you my best wishes for peace, happiness and good health! https://www.facebook.com/OpenMic1010
