Round two of our Texaco Country Showdown saw more great local talent from Central New York. Plus, it was nice to get-away and enjoy some cooler breezes off Oneida Lake at beautiful Sylvan Beach. Check out the videos from the night's performances.

It was a very close vote with Blaine Holcomb of Hamilton advancing to the finals on August 24th.  Blaine, A St. Lawrence U student will turn 20 this coming Monday, July 25 so it was like an early birthday present.

You may have seen our next performer at area nightclubs or at Frogfest.  Kelly Preston from Ilion is part of the Renegade Blue Band.

And last but not least is a young lady from Canastota, Destiny Swanson who performs Sara Evans and Reba McEntire.

Round three of the Texaco Country Showdown is set for Wednesday August 3 at the Sylvan Beach Grandstand.  The showdown starts at 6, and Frogfest favorites, The Custom Taylor Band plays immediately afterward from 7 to 9.  It's all free!  If you would like to take part in the Texaco Country Showdown, the nations largest country music talent search, send a demo here.
