We just learned that Hilary Scott and Michael ONeill’s song, “Didn’t Make It Alive” (track 10 on the Freight Train Love album) has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Country division.
All Semi Finalist are considered for finalist positions. Winners and Finalists will be announced in December. Songs selected as Semi Finalists are in the top 20 per cent (one in five) of all entries as rated by the judges. In other words, most songs, four out of five songs entered in the contest this year, did NOT make it through to this stage. If a song is chosen as a Semi Finalist it will continue to the higher judging stages and has the chance to reach the Finals and may even be a Winner.
We’ll keep you posted!!
