2012 Grand Prize Winner
Morgan Taylor Reid - "Stay Where You Are"
“While writing and producing music for other artists is a dream job for me, my first real passion is creating my own music. I’m so happy to have won the Show Me The Music songwriting contest because it’s such a pleasant reminder that there are still people out there who appreciate music from independent artists like me. I’m so very grateful for the prize money because it will give me the time and resources to finally put out a full-length ‘Morgan Taylor Reid’ solo album, which I hope to release by the end of the year. And more importantly, I’m so appreciative that there is a contest out there that acknowledges songwriters. It gives me the motivation to keep pushing on, and creating the ‘art’ in an industry that sometimes can feel like it’s all about the ‘business’.” – Morgan Taylor Reid
