It went like this

Good morning! How are you? I’m good. Hard time sleeping last night for some reason. Will make the day on about 2 hours. Bleh.
Oh yeah! Here’s how the story goes.
So last Thursday, I entered a Singer/song writer event at a local place. I haven’t played on stage like that in over 10 years. I was excited. The event is for local musicians to showcase original material for a chance at $1000 and some studio time. Also, winners get played on the local red dirt radio station. Red Dirt being not main stream or pop country. There are several rounds. I think the event lasts until April or so. One Thursday a month.
Anyway, I brushed off 2 songs. One, I have never like the last verse, so I played around with it. The other, it needs tweaking, but it would do for an opening song. You were to play two songs. One as a warm up and one for the contest. I played the rewrite for wifey. “That’s great” she said. I played it for oldest “ehhh, ya know…”. Ok. Back to the drawing board. We did this a few more times. I finally selected one version and went with it.
Big night came! There were sooooi many people!! I’ve been out of the music scene for a bit, and only recognized a few guys that I had played with before. Maybe 50 musicians? A lot!
They cut us to one song to make time for as many as possible. My turn came. I strap on the guitar and head on stage.
There are some judges and some voting is based on crowd response. So, a big support<b> group </font></b>helps. Some guys there had several tables worth of support. I get a welcoming round of applause from musicians and about 300 audience members. Wow. This wasn’t like the old days. Anyway, I strum the guitar, and off we go! Not bad I thought. I should’ve picked a more upbeat song. That’s another story. I get to the 3rd verse. I forgot the words. Damn. I kinda fumbled through the first line that I had rewritten. And then I go blank. I couldn’t even remember my name. So, in those few seconds, I managed to remember the original writing. Finished the song out. Sheesh. Oh well. I got some nice comments and a applause. It was fun! I blew it, but it was a blast! I won’t go on to next round, but I enjoyed the heck out of the event.

Have a great day! 💋

Go on to the next round or not, all that matters is you had fun. I could never do something like that. It would have been hard for me just to be in a crowd of that many. I'm proud of you and I bet wifey is too

Will try something else. We have always had fun with it in the past. Now that kiddos are grown, I have a lot more time to try and get back into this.

Given the applause, it sounds like you did well. A couple of fumbled lines won't matter; the audience probably didn't notice and, if ther did, probably didn't care. The applause says it all!

Well, they did notice. I had fun. Not sure I will do it again. It was fun though!

I can relate to the mind going blank when up onstage while playing and singing my friend.. Kudos to you for doing it, going with original material and playing for that many people.. No wonder we clicked my fellow musician...I am in awe of you and your talent....xoxo
