NASHVILLE, TENN., USA - January 22, 2018 -- The winners of the SongDoor 2017 Int'l. Songwriting Competition have been announced: the Grand Award has gone to David Pellegrini of Maryland for his song, “Lay My Burdens Down,” which also won the Christian category.

“The distance between first and second place was only one point,” says Tony Zotta, SongDoor president. “For that reason we would also like to give some special recognition to Simon Finn, the Soft Rock Category winner for his outstanding work on ‘Rewind’. There was particularly fierce competition this year, and the judge’s final scores are certainly indicative of that.”

This year's "Staff Favorite" was from a band named The Fine Lines, whose song “Night Town” was a contagious hit amongst the SongDoor employees. The song, written by band members Connor Reed, Shane Coogan, Nik Webster, Vincent Park was a finalist in the Hard Rock/Alt-Rock category.

The competition was generously sponsored by SongU.com, Broadjam, Colorado Sound, Steve Avedis, Robin Frederick and MasterWriter. Not just the winners won -- every songwriter who entered this year's competition receives a free 45-day all-access trial to SongU.com, a free Broadjam Film & TV membership as well as free song-editing software to help them improve their skills, a package worth $220 for all entrants.

As the winner of this year's Grand Award, David wins a one-year Platinum membership to SongU.com, a full-band demo recorded and engineer by Emmy-winner Steve Avedis cut at the famous Colorado Sound studio in Denver, an Alvarez acoustic guitar, Masterwriter software, a Broadjam Primo membership and a host of other prizes valued at more than $4,900.
