Guitar Center Launches Singer Songwriter 2

Your Chance To Win: Guitar Center’s Singer Songwriter 2 National Contest.

National brand, Guitar Center, is offering aspiring singer/songwriters nationwide the opportunity to see their dreams come true…or at least to get their foot in the door via a national contest, Singer-Songwriter 2. Essentially, you submit your original songs/performance, and in the end you have the chance to work with a well known producer, John Shanks, snag a cash prize, and perform your music on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

No doubt this is conceivably a stellar opportunity, but I expect the competition will be steep! The inaugural contest debuted last year, and received over 17,000 applicants! If you’ve got what it takes though, find complete details below and best of luck!!
