Five songwriters and a duo were named as winners in the 2014 Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition for Emerging Songwriters. Daniel Boling (Albuquerque, New Mexico), Connor Garvey (South Portland, Maine), Frank Martin Gilligan (Dickinson, Texas), The Lovebirds featuring Lindsay White and Veronica May (San Diego, California), Matt Nakoa (Brooklyn, New York), and Caroline Spence (Nashville, Tennessee) were selected by a panel of judges from among 32 finalists who performed two songs each during the New Folk Concerts on May 24 and 25 as part of the Kerrville Folk Festival, an 18-day event at the Quiet Valley Ranch in the Texas Hill Country. The six later performed in a New Folk Winners Concert and received cash honorariums and other prizes.

Established in 1972 at the urging of Peter Yarrow, the Kerrville New Folk concerts have become a highlight of the annual festival that is geared towards singer-songwriters of various musical styles and is the longest continuously running festival of its kind in North America.
