All of these are really great! Only the words I followed the music to Austin need to be on it though. On #4 I don't care for the old fashioned speaker, but would prefer a guitar,. Another idea I had is to use the neck of the guitar like you used the music bar. On #1, I would like to see the whole phrase in the logo, not just follow the music. On number two, the words at the top I would like to see in black. Thank you so much for working on these.. you all are talented!.

Re #1: I do have the whole phrase below the logo...
Did you just want it to read "I followed the music to Austin"
Or do you want both phrases incuded?
Let me know,
Thanks!

I like the idea of the neck of the guitar acting as a "path" to Austin as on #3 and #4. I want this to be simple yet sexy and edgy so that if it is on a t-shirt people will be excited about wearing it or giving it to a music loving friend. It may also act as a book cover, bumper sticker, etc.

There are so many great designs here and I appreciate all the entries. It is really hard to decide on just one.

Due to the holiday weekend and many people leaving town, I am not able to get some changes done that would help me in my decision so I extended the contest 5 days. Thanks for the participation. Really cool work.
