Lisa Torres country song "Alive" is finalist in MerleFest songwriting contest

Nashville country singer/songwriter Lisa Torres is getting more attention for the country music song "Alive," which she co-wrote with Arlis Albritton. She has previously won SingerUniverse "Best Vocalist Of The Month" for her performance of the song, and the most recent news is that the song has been named as a finalist in the 18th annual Chris Austin Songwriting Contest, hosted by the MerleFest music festival. The winning song will be announced following a performance of the song by Torres on April 30. (H/T: Peter Cooper, TuneInMusicCity)

Torres gives some of the background on this recent accolade:
There are three people who placed in the country division and the winner will be chosen at the Merlefest Music Festival on April 30th. Can't wait to sing my song for them. I also need to give some credit to my cowriter on the song, "Alive," Arlis Albritton.
On her web site, Torres says that she grew up in Castaic, California, about 40 miles north of Los Angeles. Torres' dad grew up in California, as well, and his family is from New Mexico, with roots going back to Mexico.

Torres' music career started with her attraction to the music of Garth Brooks, Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood, according to her web site. After performing herself for a few years with a home base in her native California, Torres moved to Nashville in 2005.
