Congrats to Charleston musician Frank Carlier (owner of Carlier’s School of Guitar & Music). The guitarist and songsmith finished in the top three for notorious host Jerry Springer‘s daytime talk show recent songwriter’s competition in Chicago with a twangy tune with hilariously dirty/trashy lyrics titled “I’m Going on the Jerry Springer Show.”

Carlier was announced as the winner was announced last Wednesday (May 20), and awarded a fancy check for $5,000. Visit for a video of Carlier’s winning ditty, and check for more. —TBL
