Pucket's Boat House
Puckett’s Boat House announces it’s popular Rising Star singer-songwriter open-mic contest returns for Series 18.
Ever want to be Simon Cowell or Mariah Carey? Now you can at Puckett’s Boathouse starting Tuesday, June 4, 2013 and continuing for the following 8 weeks. Puckett’s Boat House invites local singer-songwriters to perform their original songs in a one-of-a-kind event where the listening audience casts their vote for their favorite song. Along with the audience, a panel of industry judges selects their favorite song.
Fourteen preliminary winners move onto the semi-finals, where the audience will pick one, and judges select three to move onto the finals. The four finalists then compete head to head and the grand prize winner receives $500 cash from Puckett’s and is part of a songwriter round with other hit Nashville songwriters at Puckett’s Franklin (our 120 4th Ave. S location) with other well known professional songwriters.
Previous contestants have moved onto bigger things in their careers, like Colton Dixon and Amber Caparas (American Idol), as well as Marc Scabilia, Jason Wyatt, and Calynn Green (full time artists). This is truly a great way to discover new talent before anyone else and get to hear new rising stars, states Rising Star co-founder, Keith Mohr.
