Editor’s Note: I will be a judge in future weeks. Due to this, I’ll hold back all personal opinions about each night of songwriters, songs, and finalists until after April 7.

After a week of Spring Break, the Spring Singer-Songwriter Competition started back up Monday night at The Blue Light. Much was the same as Week 1 two weeks ago. Dark-country folker Charlie Stout started the night off with a collection of murder ballads and songs about trains while Monday Night host Benton Leachman bookended the night with an additional collection of murder ballads and songs about trains tragic love loss and songs about zombies.

The meat of the Monday night sandwich was, of course, 12 songwriters playing two songs each. For the second week, songwriters Kenny Harris, Erick Willis, Marshall Vines, and Dave Martinez moved on to the finals. As a refresher, they join Week I finalists Dalton Domino, Lora Markham, Drew Thomas, and Randall King.
