Thank God For the Blues was selected as a Top 5 Winner in the R&B category of the 17th Annual Great American Song Contest, and was awarded an 'Outstanding Achievement In Songwriting.'

Judges praised 'Thank God For the Blues' for its “strong chorus, consistently engaging lyrical story and smartly designed melodic composition.”

Judges went on to say, "It’s not often that we are presented with a blues tune as well-crafted as this one. The vivid and relatable premise is sharply etched, right down to the flip of the latch on the smelly musty case. And you bring it home with the obvious yet simple and personifying title/hook. Outstanding work! This song has also achieved finalist status. CONGRATULATIONS!"
