Blake Guthrie is a Georgia-based freelance writer, travel journalist, and award-winning singer/songwriter. He has won and been a finalist in numerous songwriting competitions, including the OurStage Top Ten, the Eddie's Attic Open Mic Shootout, the Independent Music Awards, the KRCL Performing Songwriter Showcase, and the International Songwriting Competition. For two years in a row, he was selected “Critic's Choice” as “Best Acoustic Act/Singer/Songwriter in Atlanta” by Creative Loafing back when that publication was still the largest newsweekly in the Southeast (this was before Blake started writing for the magazine).
He also wants you to think that he didn't write this himself.
