The local Colgate Country Showdown competition, sponsored by KYTI 93.7 The Coyote was held Friday night at the Best Western Sheridan Center. There were nine contestants who competed to move on to the state competition. In the end the Eric May Band out of Gillette took home the top prize. May explains that they elected to play their own music at the competition, and that the reason for doing itwas simple.
The Eric May Band will now advance to the state competition to be held August 7th in Great Falls, Montana, with a chance to move on to the regional competition at a site yet to be determined.
