The Gadsden Flag Competition: A Little Reminder

Just to make sure we don't get to many rejects, I would like to reiterate the style of song I'm looking for in this competition.

If your entry is along the lines of lyrics only, write it as a poem with a refrain.

If your entry is along the lines of a tune only, write it as a fanfare or an easily hummed tune. Consider America, the Beautiful, or God Save the South as inspiration. "Country Western" or "Rock" songs aren't the idea for this competition.

While it may appeal to some, America, the Beautiful doesn't sound too great as a drum solo, so keep it traditional.

As I've said before, there are many songs either directly or indirectly about the Gadsden Flag that don't properly respect or honor the flag as an American symbol. I want someone to produce a song that does the Rattler Flag justice.

Don't be shy; enter as many songs with as many alterations as you want.

Good luck!
