VINING, Iowa (KCRG) – A man from Vining, Iowa won the International Singer Songwriters Association’s 2023 Storyteller/Songwriter Award during an award show in Atlanta on Aug. 5.
The association, which represents more than 16,000 independent singer/songwriters around the world, said Todd Apfel was nominated and chosen for the award by its members. Award winners from the past two years pick the current year’s winner after the nominations are made.

The association said Apfel recently retired as the Zoning Administrator from Tama and Marshall Counties.
