August 6, 2008 at 7:06 AM (PT)
GAC-TV and MUSIC NATION have announced the six finalists for "The Next GAC Star," the network's first-ever nationwide talent competition in search of the next Country music star. J.C. ANDERSON, TYLER BARHAM, ANGELA ENGELMAN, MEGAN CONNER, ONE NIGHT RODEO and LANE TURNER were all chosen out of thousands of independent Country artists who uploaded videos, mp3s and photos online at www.gactv.com/star.
The finalists will be flown to NASHVILLE this month to compete in activities like impromptu performances, rehearsals and recording sessions. Each finalist will receive a GIBSON LES PAUL JUNIOR guitar and will be mentored by the show's judges, DESMOND CHILD and VICTORIA SHAW.
The season finale will air in two parts, with AMERICA voting to determine the winner. The first part airs SEPTEMBER 3rd, and the winner will be chosen on SEPTEMBER 10th with a live elimination that same night. BIG MACHINE RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist JACK INGRAM will also be featured as an additional judge on the SEPTEMBER 10th show.
Catch both finale episodes of "The Next GAC Star" on SEPTEMBER 3rd and 10th at 9p (ET) on GAC-TV. For more info, visit www.gactv.com/star.
