Texas Music Pickers Songwriter Challenge Videos (Word Set #1)

We sent out a songwriter challenge 3 weeks ago that asked aspiring songwriters to pen a song with one of the 10 random word sets we provided them with, film an acoustic performance of that song, and get it back to us before the deadline (last Sunday). 

Check out all of the video submissions below for Random Word Set #1 and if you like what hear, be sure to check out more information on the artist!
