Jimmy Fortune

The Bosque Arts Center is delighted to announce Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers as headliner and judge for the 2024 Texas Troubadour Songwriter Classic.

Joining the group first as a temporary replacement for tenor Lew DeWitt, Fortune became a permanent member of the Statler Brothers in August of 1982 when DeWitt’s health forced him to retire.  Fortune quickly made his presence felt, penning number one hits for the group such as “Elizabeth” and “My Only One.”

After judging the finalists in the live Troubadour event on October 26, Fortune will perform a concert with his quartet to close out the evening.

Entry deadline for the Songwriter Classic is August 20, 2024.  The two-part contest is open to country music songwriters and singer/songwriters with $3,000 in awards available: $1,000 for the Song of the Year (based on mp3 song submissions and lyrics); $1,500 and $500 for the Texas Troubadour and People’s Choice awards, respectively, in the live performance category.

Entry fees are $15 per song entry with an additional $15 fee for the Texas Troubadour live event consideration.
