Country Music Showdown Presented By Ringers Western
Held on the last Saturday of show, Ekka’s Country Music Showdown Presented by Ringers Western is a place for rising stars to showcase their talent and catch their big break!
In 2018, budding music stars had the chance to share in $10,000 worth of cash and prizes, that will help excel their Nashville dreams. A range of artists aged 12 years and over got the ultimate music experience, performing to Ekka crowds backed by Brisbane based live band Southwest.
Top prizes included a Taramalin Sound Package and $1,500 cash prize for competitors in the open category (17 years and older) and Troy Cassar-Daley scholarship to the Tamworth Academy of Country Music 2019 for those in the junior competition (12 to 16 years).
