Grab your seat at the finals!

It's been an adventure. 57 amazing local artists submitted their best original songs to the 2017 WKMS Singer/Songwriter Competition. The judges narrowed it down to their Top 12 and you voted online and through social media. 

Now the Top 4 go on to perform live at Paducah's Maiden Alley Cinema on Thursday, March 30 at 7pm. Be in the audience to hear their sets, then vote for your favorite to win the Grand Prize!

Tickets are $10 and will be available at maidenalleycinema.org later this week and at the door.
