Crossroads Music and our publishing arm are excited once again to work with Mickey and his site GospelSongwriter.Com and his song contest. Last year we worked with Mickey and came up with a wonderful winner titled "Thankful" by Beverly Ridley. The response to this song has been wonderful and working with Beverly has too. So, Asheville Music Publishing / Chris White Music are once again teaming up with GospelSongwriter.Com to offer a "Single Song" publishing contract for the winner of this contest. The winning song will be brought into our catalog to be pitched not only to the family of artist that record on the various Crossroads labels but to all artist that we hear of that are looking for strong material. So get those songs entered into the contest and let's share them with the world.
