Colgate Country Showdown

Saturday night Cara participated in another competition. It was the Colgate Country Showdown. There were 18 contestants. It was held at the Simmons Center in Duncan. This is her hanging out in the green room ( that is pink).She warmed up and entertained the other contestants at intermission.

This talented young man jumped in and played lead. They had a good time just playing around.

Cara on stage she sang " Johnny and June" When we left the house that afternoon to go, her heart just wasn't into it. She had a hard time figuring out what to wear, settled for jeans and a plain t-shirt. We got there and about half way through sound check her competitive side kicked in. " Mom I can't wear what I brought it looks awful" Hmmmm... seems I mentioned that earlier. So off to Fashion Bug, we had about 30 min. I remembered this dress from last time I was in there. They had one that fit, and she liked it. Miracles do happen.

My niece Brittney Jo and Cara. She is from Okeene Ok. She has been doing this since she was 8. She has a awesome voice and is great on stage. This is the first time they have ever had to compete against each other.

This is Joshua Cole, he was the host for the evening he is a D. J. for 98.5. Funny guy. This was taken after he presented the 2nd place trophy to Brittney and the 1st place to Cara. Yes, she won. She was very excited, helped the hurt pride from last weekend. She will move on to the State level. It will be in October, with a $1,000 cash prize. Then the winner of that will move on to nationals with a $100,000 cash prize.
