Eight talented musicians from northeast Wyoming took to the stage at the Best Western in Sheridan to compete in this year's Texaco Country Showdown. For the second year in a row, Jordan Smith of Gillette took home the top prize. Smith says he'll take a different approach this time at the next level of the competition.
Smith will now compete in the Montana State Finals, which will take place August 2nd and 3rd at the Montana State Fair in Great Falls, MT. The overall winner of the national competition will receive a national recording contract and $100,000.
