It was a lucky week for two performers at week seven of the 23rd Series of the $14,000 Tin Roof Cantina Acoustic Showdown. Every Monday until November 19th, about a dozen singer/songwriters vie for a chance to compete in the showdown finale to win over $13,000 in prizes. Each week one singer/songwriter will move on to the December 7th grand finale and a runner-up will get a chance to compete in the semi-finals on Monday, November 26.
Tonight’s artists included:
- Lexi Street
- Alex Hill
- Billy Simons Jr
- Von Stein
- Harvey Glickson
- Daniel Hearn
- Keith Cuts
- Ben Wade Marcum
- Dave Houston
- Scottie Mac
- Charley Gressett
To select the winner the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown team received a vote for two performers from the fans. Each performer also got to select two other performers as their favorites. 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, November 26, was Billy Simons Jr.
Tonight’s winner was Ben Wade Marcum who will be moving on to the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown Grande Finale on Friday, December 7th. Take a listen to one of the songs Ben Wade Marcum performed to win week 7 of the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown.
