We had another great final round this year at our 5th Annual Songwriter Competition as 12 aspiring singer/songwriters took the stage this past Saturday evening and poured their hearts and souls out on the stage! After the first set of performances, 5 finalists were chosen to play one final song:
- Ben Kadlecek
- Holly Beth
- Autumn Ragland
- Cameron Havens
- Lucas Jagneaux
Each of the performers played their final tune and then a winner was chosen: Lucas Jagneaux!
Even though there was only one winner, many of industry judges were blown away by the level of talent overall, and assuredly all of the songwriters picked up some new fans!
The night was capped off when Kyle Carter, the President & CEO of Mile 0 Fest, added a surprise addition to the prize package by offering Jagneaux a spot at the Festival. Jagneaux now shares a bill with Jason Isbell, Randy Rogers, Robert Earl Keen, Whiskey Myers and many more!
The crowd asked for one more song from the winner and you can check out that video below:
