2016 Finalist in Country Category for “Another Good Mistake”

“It’s great to be recognized by such a prestigious organization dedicated to the craft of songwriting”, Hauptschein said. “I was fooling around with some syncopated guitar licks with the vague notion of writing an Americana Soul song with a Steely Dan vibe. The melody and lyrical hook came to me with unusual ease and the song took shape with the help of several very talented studio musicians. I’m thrilled to earn an award from a contest bearing the name of one of the greatest songwriters ever.”
