Ali Beck, Alyssa Bittner, and Kristin Litzenberg battled it out on stage in a singing competition before the Jamie Lynn Spears concert on July 4 at the McGrath Amphitheater.

The girls were competing in the local round of Country On The River's 'Next Big Star' contest. The winner advances to the final round on Thursday, August 7 in Prairie du Chien where the finalists will compete prior to Tracy Lawrence for the $1,000 prize and 6 VIP tickets to this year’s Country on the River. The overall winner of the contest will get to sing before both The Band Perry and Jason Aldean.

Congrats to Alyssa Bittner, our local contest winner!
