History was made Saturday night at Diamond Lake's Good Time Theatre!  For the first time in the eight-year history of the event, a female grand champion was crowned.  And here's video of the big reveal . . . when Morgan Book of Henderson, Kentucky was named the winner of the contest!

With her victory Morgan earned $1000 and the right to open the 2017 Big O Music Festival at Reid's Orchard on Saturday, July 8th.  She'll open for Cole Swindell, Colt Ford, Tucker Beathard, Dylan Scott, Craig Campbell, Moon Taxi and Muscadine Bloodline. Tickets remain on sale at BigOMusicFest.com.

Congratulations to all of our 2017 Battle for the Big O finalists.  And a HUGE congrats to Morgan Book, who made history on Saturday night by becoming the first female to claim the grand prize.  We can't wait to see and hear our new champ at the Big O!
