February 14, 2011 at 2:44 PM (PT)
Singer/songwriter BRANDON GREEN has been announced as the winner of GUITAR CENTER’s YOUR NEXT RECORD WITH KEITH URBAN contest. Over 6,000 artists sent in submissions for the contest, where the top 100 were selected through eight weeks of peer judging on www.OurStage.com. URBAN hand selected the winner with his creative team.
BRANDON will get to record a 3-song EP in the studio with CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN and his producer, DANN HUFF. He will also get the chance to open for KEITH on his soon-to-be-launched “Get Closer 2011 World Tour” and will also receive $20,000 in music gear and endorsements from GIBSON, D’ADDARIO, EVANS and PLANET WAVES.
KEITH said: "It was extraordinary to hear so many gifted artists submit their creations to this project. It was no easy task trying to narrow it down and quite frankly I could've chosen a dozen easily. From solo singers and players to duos, trios, bands, it was amazing to hear so much great talent. But I heard something in BRANDON's voice that resonated with me. An authentic blend of confidence and vulnerability that made me want to hear more. So I look forward to doing just that."
