In conjunction with Earth Day and the global Earth Hour initiative, Belmont University is holding a contest to find their official “green” song. Five songs were chosen by a panel of professional songwriters, faculty members and environmental experts to promote environmental awareness. The competition is comprised of Belmont University students. The writer of the winning composition will receive a $500 Apple gift card and the song will be featured on their website as their official “green” song.
We at Country Universe are excited to announce that Dan Milliken is one of the finalists in the Belmont Unplugged Song Challenge. Dan wrote the witty and catchy “Goin’ Green” with his friend, Jake Hartsfield. He can even be heard singing high harmony to Hartsfield’s lead vocal, along with contributing the hilarious main spoken word portion of the third verse.
Country Universe is rooting for Dan. So, we encourage you to listen to his entry (the middle song), along with all of the other submissions. The winner will be chosen by poll voting. The winning song will be announced on April 22, Earth Day. Check out the songs, cast your vote and then come back and tell us what you think.
Kudos to Belmont University for promoting such a worthwhile cause.
And, of course, good luck to Dan!
