When the doors open for the Country Music Marathon & Marathon post race concert, three finalists will have been chosen from the current season of NASHVILLE STAR.
After being handpicked from tens of thousands of country music hopefuls in a nationwide search and performing on live television for weeks in intense competition, these three artists will open for Phil Vassar. Vassar is also one of the judges on NASHVILLE STAR so he was actively involved with selecting his own opening act. This concert will be the finalists' first ever arena stage performance before one of them is crowned the next NASHVILLE STAR.
THE THREE FINALISTS
Chris Young: Chris is a multi-talented 20 year-old with a flair for singing, song-writing and dancing. Chris considers himself an expert at Line Dancing and Hip-Hop. He is from Murfreesboro, Tenn. and has a fan club of hundreds who follow him religiously across the country.
Nicole Jamrose: A 33 year-old mother of two from Schererville, IN, Nicole brings her folk- infused sound to the show. Nicole’s Nashville Star auditions marks her one and only contention for any talent show title and she was blown away to find out that she was one of the 10 finalists.
Casey Rivers: Casey is a native of Lindale, Texas and hopes to follow in the footsteps of Lindale’s other NASHVILLE STAR alum, Miranda Lambert. Casey is 23 and claims he briefly dated Miranda in high school. He has already shared the stage with country music greats Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson.
