The Madison Letter up for MTV Award

February means cold temps and snow, snow, snow for the students of Greenville College. You can even check out how our staff makes the best of it—Agapefest Style, of course—in our newest segment of AFTV. Aside from the chilly weather outside, though, for some students, February means the start of something new. It is the month that four young men joined together to form a campus band that is now getting nation-wide attention.
 
The Madison Letter initially started in February of 2010, and its members include Clayton Jones, Phil Ortiz, Tyler Ross, and Mitch Schrock. Throughout the past three years, they have been involved in our festival.
 
“We first got involved with AgapeFest in the spring of 2010 when we tried out for the festival’s battle of the bands, in which we placed second,” Jones explained. “And we’ve been asked back every year since then.”
 
The band has also played various shows in 14 states across the US; and their biggest, most-noteworthy gig was this past October when they opened for The Script at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis.
 
Currently, The Madison Letter is nominated as one of four bands in the country for MTVu’s first ever Chevrolet Sonic College Artist Woodie Award. The band is now being featured on all of MTV’s networks as well as the website, www.chevy.mtv.com. There, you can vote for them unlimitedly through March 1st. If the band wins the popular vote, they will be flown down to Austin, TX in March to perform live and receive the award at the Woodie Awards, which takes place during SXSW music festival.
 
This could be big for this very talented group of students and we, at Agapefest, want to support them as much as possible so we ask that you VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!
