The Dockery's Songwriter's Contest

Calling all songwriters!

Dockery's is hosting a Songwriting Contest and you're invited to participate! Winners will perform at Dockery's with professional songwriters from Nashville who have won Grammys, topped the Billboard charts, and worked with some of the best-selling artists of all time, including Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McIntire, Tim McGraw, George Strait, Darius Rucker and more!

Are you ready to get your songs heard and reviewed by experienced music-industry pros? Are you seeking opportunities to gain recognition and promote your songs? Dockery's Songwriter Contest is uniquely designed to offer these very opportunities to every songwriter who participates.

Anyone who writes and performs their own original songs is eligible to compete. Entries will be judged by our panel of award-winning songwriters: Clay Mills, Steve Dean, and Billy Montana. The panel will invite a select number of Charleston area songwriters to perform with them on the Dockery's stage in October. "Being a singer/songwriter is the best of both worlds", Steve says. "I can take my music to the people in its purest form." This is your chance to bring your music to those that take music to the world!

Each entry requires the following elements:
