A message from Paul Castoe,

President and

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!
