ABC RADIO NETWORKS' AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN WITH KIX BROOKS has announced the winner of this year's ACC SUPERSTAR. SHAWN DODD, a 37-year-old waiter and demo singer originally from TEXAS, was voted the winner by online voters and a panel of music industry experts.
As part of his prize package, DODD will get to meet with executives at BIG MACHINE RECORDS and join ACC host BROOKS for an in-studio interview. He will also get to record his winning song in a professional recording studio in NASHVILLE, do a photo shoot with a music industry photographer and receive a professionally written biography and consultation with an artist management firm and booking agency.
Hundreds of aspiring Country singers uploaded 30-second video auditions of themselves singing a hit Country song from the SONY ATV catalog at www.ACCTOP40.com. Each week for six weeks five videos were selected by a panel of experts for listeners to vote for online, and those favorites all narrowed down to four finalists. More than 200,000 votes were cast throughout the contest.
