Drawing for place

Technical difficulties (yeah, really)  prevented this reporter from reporting on what was said and done at this week (Sept. 11) Shiner Rising Star. However, it was done well, by both bands (the third band, led by Jud Block, had to cancel out at the last minute), The LDJ Band and the Derek Anthony Band. Juding this week were Chance Cody, formerly with KHYI and the leader of the Spur 503 band; Tip Jones, Overdrive Entertainment; and Zane Williams, singer-songwriter extraordinaire. That team of music leaders led a friendly and fun-filled evening at Tupelo Honey in Denison.

Ultimately, with only a total few points difference between the two teams, it was announced Friday morning (Sept. 12) that it would be the Derek Anthony band moving into Round 2.

Round 1 Week 7 contest will be at 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 18, at The Rustic in Dallas, with another strong contest between great bands, led by Tyler Rogers, Josh Halverson, and Troy Murph. Never a cover charge at the hosting venues for these contests. What started as 24 out of dozens of eager bands, Shiner Rising Star will culminate with a recording contract through Shiner Records for the one band that comes out as the winner, sometime in mid-November. Shiner Beer and radio station KHYI (95.3) are the other two sponsors.
