Best Local Songwriter

David Childers

Staff Pick

Childers has won this award so many times that we should consider renaming it the David Childers Award for Best Local Songwriter. If you like your rock with a literary bent and delivered with the conviction of a Sunday sermon, Childers is your man. The Mount Holly native is equally adept at penning country weepers or incandescent rockers, and whether the topic is personal or historical, Childers’ songs always feel thoroughly lived in. He’s quick to credit his deserving band, the Modern Don Juans, but it all begins with Childers.
