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.

Songwriters Sarah Johnson, Cleto Cordero, Jason James, and Josh Jackson all moved on to the Spring Finals in the final week of the preliminaries. Monday Night host Benton Leachman and Kenneth O’Meara opened and closed the night down before the final four names were announced. 

Week III Songwriters:

Justin Beiser
Brandon Patrick
Tanner Cadra
Aaron Smith
Johnny Mulh
Sarah Johnson
Cleto Cordero
Levi Fowler
Jason James
Lee Sheetz
Ray Fairley
Josh Jackson

Johnson, Cordero, James, and Jackson join Week I’s finalists Lora Markham, Dalton Domino, Drew Thomas, and Randall King, and Week II’s finalists Marshall Vines, Dave Martinez, Erick Willis, and Kenny Harris. Those 12 finalists will all be playing two songs each in next week’s finals (Monday, April 7.) Keep updated on the Spring Singer-Songwriter Competition, stay tuned to New Slang.
