VOTING FOR THE BEST AMERICAN SOLO SONGWRITER

I will submit a list of songwriters talked about in my last blog to chose from for voting. There are 53 nominations, but anyone is allowed a single write in vote with no questions asked. Please cast ten votes as the votes will be weighted on a ten point system, that is 10 points for first place, 9 points for second, etc. Ballots containing MORE THAN ONE WRITE IN should explain why additional candidates should be considered for submission. You can write in ten songwriters if you want, just explain why on nine of them if you want their votes counted. Please remember that this particular vote is for songwriters who rarely collaborate and are North American, so Canadians and Mexicans are included. If you want information on the nominees, please refer to my previous blog,

THE ART OF GREAT SONGWRITING FORUM, American writers.
