MAY 2020 – “THOUGHTS OF YOU”

AND THE WINNER IS…

 

SCOTT BORECKI AND RALF TYRA!  

IT’S A TIE!  6-6! (30-30)

 

This contest was INSANE.  Wow!  So what happens?  Well, in the rules it states that in the case of a tie I, Eric Passmore, would choose the winning mix.  But….well….I CAN’T!!  I WON’T! The people have spoken and I just can’t bring myself to choose a winner – both are winners. SO, I’ve decided to offer both contestants the full Kush Omega series!  Congrats guys!

 

Huge thanks to everyone who participated in this contest – you all rock 🙂

 




 

BONUS CONTEST

 

OLD SCHOOL COUNTRY BALLAD

 

About 15 years ago, I wrote this old school cowboy ditty called “Thoughts Of You”.  I’d never written anything like it (nor have I since) and I honestly can’t remember what possessed me to do so.  Saloon love songs really aren’t my thing – honestly they aren’t!!!

Ten years later, I joined a website called “TAXI”, which is geared towards getting songwriters placements in film and television….and guess what?…one placement post described my song PERFECTLY!  I was so excited.  I thought FOR SURE I HAD THE SONG!

The only problem was I didn’t have a recording of it, and I certainly wasn’t able to sing or produce it myself!  So I took a leap of faith…I banged out a terrible demo of the song in my home studio and sent this demo to a professional studio in Nashville. Within 24 hours I had an amazing recording sent back to me, which I promptly sent to TAXI with only hours to spare before the submission deadline!

Aaaannnnd?….I wasn’t selected – lol…BUT, I was left with this charming, live off the floor version of my one and only vintage country song…and now it’s yours to mix 🙂
