Week seven of the 22nd Series of the $13,000 Tin Roof Cantina Acoustic Showdown was a lucky week for music fans. The talent that came to stage this week made it tough to cast a vote for the top two. This Monday, and every Monday until July 23rd, at least a dozen singer/songwriters vie for a chance to compete in the showdown finale to win over $13,000 worth of prizes. Each week one singer/songwriter will move on to the August 10th finale and a runner-up will get a chance to compete in the semi-finals on Monday, July 30th.
Tonight’s artists included:
- Aether Solaris
- Ali Blake
- Anthony Crane
- Ben Wade Marcum
- Cure My Enemy
- Gressett Derr & Durham
- Hannah Rose Kaufmann
- Ian Calk
- John Griswell
- Layne Denton
- William James Bodnar
To select the winner the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown team received a vote for two performers from the fans and each band got to select two other bands. Peer voting counted for 5 points and fan votes for 1 point. After the votes were tallied we learned that moving on to the semi finals on Monday, July 30th were Leighlynn Shine and Caroline Roman
Tonight’s winner was Sarah Zúñiga, who will be moving on to the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown Finale on Friday, August 10th.
