Green,of Rossville, Georgia has his own Design company and works for the Southern Gospel Group, Young Harmony, as webmaster and fan club President. Green graduated from Ridgeland High School on May 22nd and states, “I am going to miss school, but I have the whole summer to be with my road friends and travel. I think the trip to New York and being a part of the oldest running Country Music talent search is going to be a great experience.”
The Colgate Country Showdown begins each Spring with over 450 local talent contests sponsored by country music radio stations throughout the US. Winners advance to their respective State competitions held at leading fairs and expositions. Acts then compete for a $1,000 prize, the State Title and the opportunity to advance to one of five Regional Finals. It’s the last step before the prestigious National Final held at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. The audience cheers on the Regional Winners, as they compete for the Grand Prize of $100,000 and the National Title. A uniform judging system is used at all levels of competition to ensure fairness.
