Bob Wills Fiddle Division
- Contestants must play tunes associated with our heroes – Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys! Judges ask contestants to play reasonably within the boundaries of Western swing style (disco, hip-hop, Justin Bieber, etc. versions of Take Me Back to Tulsa will probably not be scored very high!!) – however, contestants will have the freedom to play it straight or swing like crazy! Since this is a judged fiddle division, we ask that contestants keep the fiddle as the only lead instrument (singing and band performances will be allowed, but only the fiddling will be judged).
- Contestants will play 1 tune on day one. The top five contestants from day one will progress to day two for the championship round. On day two, the top five will play 1 tune which must be different than the tune played from day 1. A 6-minute or less time limit is recommended.
