[WINNERS] Stuck In Nashville: Win Tickets to John Fogerty at Ryman

Congratulations to our winners, Sheila Lawrence and Steve Morley, who each get a pair of tickets to see John Fogerty at the Ryman. We also wanted to give a nod to Michael Davis, who gets an honorable mention. Thanks!


    Sheila Lawrence
    Wish i had a dollar for every time i’ve been told
    “Your song’s gonna be a hit, if we can get it ‘on hold’!”
    And for every time of closing sunset grill
    Talking music and drinking gin
    Oh lord, stuck in nashville again…..

    Steve Morley
    I’m singin’ in a bar on Broadway, back home they think I’m doin’ okay
    But they don’t know that Music Row might as well be a world away
    And you won’t hear no country now from the stage at the Exit/In
    Oh, Lord, stuck in Nashville again

    Honorable Mention:

    Michael Davis
    When I was just seventeen
    I thought I had made my plans –
    I’d be a big hit down South,
    Surrounded by my fans.
    The bus dropped me off on Broadway –
    Nobody knew my name.
    Oh, lord; stuck in Nashville again.


[UPDATED: We’ve updated language to clarify how long the verse should be. Basically, just write a new verse to the song]


John Fogerty

Enter Our “Stuck In Nashville, Again” Lyric Contest and Win Tickets to See John Fogerty at the Ryman Auditorium

John Fogerty will not only be on NPT on Saturday, November 7 at 8:00 p.m., with John Fogerty: Live By Request, he’ll also be at the Ryman Auditorium on November 22, and NPT wants you to be there. We’ve got (2) pairs of tickets to the concert. To enter to win the tickets, we’d like you to imagine that the classic Fogerty-penned Credence Clearwater Revival song “Lodi” is really about Nashville, and then write a four-line new verse that fits the melody and ends with the line, “Oh Lord, stuck in Nashville again.”

To enter, budding lyricists must email their entry to tv8@wnpt.net with “Stuck in Nashville” in the subject line.

Entries will be accepted beginning on Monday, November 2 through 5:00 p.m. November 13. Winners will be notified on November 15 on how to get their tickets. Winning entries, and several honorable mentions, will posted here on the NPT Media Upate blog (http://www.npt08.wordpress.com) on Monday, November 15.

Be creative. Put some landmarks in there. Keep it clean. Good luck!

And don’t forget to tune in for John Fogerty: Live By Request on Saturday, November 7 at 8:00 p.m. on NPT. Just like it sounds, Fogerty will be performing live and taking requests from you and other PBS viewers around the nation who call in to the special toll-free number.
