Russian songwriter won the American music contest without knowing he was involved in it

Russian performer Leonid Agutin won the USA Songwriting Competition in the category World Music. Relevant information was published on the competition website.

The singer won with the song Just a Rainy Day.

In addition, the musical composition reached the final in the category Only a Text for the best lyrics. However, the main award went to track Thicker Than Rain by Bill Jenkins and Tristan Matthews.

The song of our compatriot was recorded with American producer Alex Sino and US guitarist Al Di Meola. The composition became part of the artist's album La Vida Cosmopolita, where most of the songs are in Spanish.

The musician himself admitted that he did not know how his composition got into the competition.

This song came out quite a long time ago, and I don't know how it got into the competition, said Agutin.

However, he noted that abroad they paid attention to modest people from Russia.

Let's remind, last month La Vida Cosmopolita was included in the long list of the award Grammy. This means that the album can qualify for awards in the categories Best Album of the Year and Best Latin Pop Album.
