Last night was the finale of WBKR's Friday Night Fight at Diamond Lake Good Time Theatre. Eight acts took the stage to compete is a series of "fights". At the end of the show, there were just two acts left: Blackford Creek from Owensboro and Payton Taylor from Hendersonville, Tennessee. Here's the moment the winners were announced.
The lineup is set for the finals of our brand new talent contest, WBKR's Friday Night Fight. We have teamed up with Friday After 5 and Gordy's Owensboro Music to give one lucky performer or group the chance to open for LOCASH in downtown Owensboro on Friday, August 24th. Eight acts have qualified for our finale, which will be held 7pm Saturday, August 4th at Diamond Lake Campground and Resort.
We should always give thanks and honor the men and women in uniform that serve and have served and fought for our freedoms. There's one special day planned in Owensboro to benefit "Honor Flight" and we can do just that!
Guys, we are less than a month away from Country Con! Saturday, September 12th 10am-7pm at the Owensboro Convention Center, over 50 acts will be performing on the Moore Music Main Stage and the Moore Music Country Con Corral. One of those acts just happens to be the winners of the 2013 Battle for the Big O, Blackford Creek!
And this is one of the songs that helped them clinch victory! Check out Blackford Creek in action in the finals of the 2013 Battle for The Big O presented by Henderson Chevy Buick GMC and CBS 44.
