The Price of a Song
Michael R. J. Roth
Winner of the 2019 Nashville Songwriters Association lyric competition
"The price of a song is the last glimpse of beauty Before you go blind The wounds of a soldier cut down under fire The scar left behind The tears of a mother with a child in her arms The Judas kiss of a faithless lover Who will rip out your heart For the price of a song"
An anthem for songwriters, written by Michael R. J. Roth (lyric winner of the 2019 NSAI/CMT song contest) and Eryn Michel (winner of the American Songwriter magazine lyric contest). Lori McKenna called Roth "brilliant." Eryn Michel's "Old Habits" was a Nashville Songwriter's Association International Top 40 favorite, and she was named a TAXI Top 10 Favorite.
