A message from Paul Castoe,
Executive Director, TSAI.
" I'm not given to rants, but I've
been asked to explain something.
TSAI is a non-profit Organization
existing for the benefit of Songwriters.
We do our best to stay out of the
political arena. However, as long as I
am here, we will remain family-friendly
with our events. We will continue to
promote and help Songwriters in
all genres, but remember where
you are when you get here.
Satan has control over the
hearts and minds of far too many
in the Entertainment Industry today.
There are 2 genders, along with varying
degrees of mental illness and
birth defects. Everyone needs prayed for.
We will continue to align ourselves with
like-minded people and music. We are
in a battle for the future of
our Nation and our children.
I have my sword and shield.
I hope to see you soon."
Our account has been revised.
SAME handle as before,
but it's a new account, you'll
need to re-follow, sorry!
