Yesterday, we announced that are third Artist Song Tournament would be tackling the discography of Ryan Bingham. For the first time though, we’ll be introducing a new fold into the mix. 

We’re introducing the opportunity for you, the reader, to fill out your own personal bracket and submit it to us for a chance to win some pretty nice incentives. Much like in March where everyone fills out their NCAA Men’s Basketball bracket, you can now fill out your Ryan Bingham Song Tournament bracket. 

As you know, this year’s 2013 Kalf Fry (Sept. 13) will be headlined by Bingham, Joe Ely, and Jason Eady. In conjunction with Roadhouse Tickets, we’ll be giving away two tickets to the Kalf Fry for whoever has the most accurate bracket.  

Additionally this time around, we’ll be tackling 68 Bingham songs (Our Turnpike Troubadours was 32 seeds and our Dirty River Boys was 24 seeds) and pitting them against each other over the course of two and a half weeks. We’ll be taking more time hashing out the ins-and-outs of every match-up. 

For those of you not familiar with our Artist Song Tournaments, here’s what you need to know. Essentially, we take an artist/band’s song catalog and rank the songs by popularity. Songs deemed more popular, the higher the seeds. Once the songs are seeded, we then have an anonymous voting pool of colleagues, songwriters, and musicians vote on each individual match-up by casting their vote for the overall better song.

As noted earlier, our Ryan Bingham Song Tournament will be taking place over the course of two and a half weeks starting Tuesday, August 20.

To be eligible to for our Ryan Bingham Song Tournament:

You must have your bracket submitted to no later than 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20. 
You must be 18 or older. 
You must only submit one bracket. 

The easiest way for you to fill out your bracket will be one of the following ways:

Open the bracket in Photoshop (or any similar software) and pasting your picks for each round. 
Printing the bracket and filling it out by hand and scanning your bracket. 

Once again, e-mail your brackets attached to with the following information:

City of Residence
Date of Birth

Winners will be notified Wednesday, Sept. 4. For obvious reasons, the winner of said tickets will have to live in the surrounding Lubbock area or be Lubbock day of show (Sept. 13, 2013).
