Last night was the SiriusXM Top of the Country Finalist show at The Palace Theatre.
The three finalists were Shantaia, Josh Ross, and Sacha. The artists came out to perform 3 songs for us and voting was open.
I had never seen Josh Ross before and he was fantastic! I can’t wait to see him again, either over the weekend or on tour. And the girls I have seen in previous showcases. Both are outstanding artists in their own right.
Sacha, I first saw at the CMAOs several years ago and she has absolutely grown as an an artist. This is why she is 100% deserving of the $25,000 massive cheque they presented her! An almost speechless Sacha stood there, as a cannon blasted confetti all around us.
The evening finished with a set from the impeccable Tenille Townes.
Beautiful in an all black leather jumpsuit, Townes exuded perfection on stage. (Serious question though; do you do the brush your hair 100 strokes thing? Because your hair is SO SHINY!!)
It is obvious to see why she is a multiple award winning artist. Her songs hit you where they are supposed to (I won’t lie, it may have been a bit early for me to see her sing “Jersey On The Wall” live yet…).
Whether she is playing the guitar or stopping the music to have you sing along, you are absolutely engaged! BRAVO!! So would I recommend seeing her live, yes I would. Without hesitation.
The evening was fantastic for the first night! I ran into some friends! I got home early! And I’m slowly getting ready for day 2….
