CBS RADIO WDSY (Y-108)/PITTSBURGH recently gave one of its local bands the chance of a lifetime -- to open for BNA RECORDS/NASHVILLE star KENNY CHESNEY on his "2008 Poets and Pirates Tour" at HEINZ FIELD on JUNE 14th.
The PITTSBURGH band NOMAD were the grand prize winners in the WDSY "Next Big Star" competition, a local talent contest that CHESNEY is doing in various cities across the country.
The station solicited demo tapes from area bands, finally narrowing the field to 4. On FRIDAY, JUNE 13th, the four groups played live at the HARD ROCK CAFE, and NOMAD was deemed the big winner. The event was topped off when KENNY dropped in and played a couple of acoustic songs live.
