Nashville Star Top Ten Finalists & Websites

Matt Mason : Born in Pleasantville, IN, this 20 year-old is such a "country
boy" he doesn't even have email. Matt's first performance was at
Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in Nashville and was attended by the legendary
Hank Williams, Jr.
http://www.mattmasonmusic.com

Monique LeCompte: Monique is a 23 year-old power vocalist who is dead set
on becoming a star. She is from Grand Terrace, CA and was raised by her
grandparents who both recently passed away. Monique works three jobs to
make a living and still finds time to pursue her dream of being a country
music superstar
http://www.myspace.com/moniquechereelecompte

Jared Ashley: A Hobbs, NM native, Jared brings his "been there done that"
attitude to the show. Jared joined the US Navy right out of high school
and served two tours in the Persian Gulf. He says he is ready to rival
Dierks Bentley for most frat houses played in America and has spent the
last 6 years looking for his big break.
http://www.jaredashley.com

Shy Blakeman: Shy is a high-energy, southern-rock-infused 25 year-old from
Laramie, WY bent on changing the boundaries of country music. After being
shot in the face in an attempted car jacking in 2002, Shy approaches every
show as though it may be his last.

Jewels Hanson: The self-proclaimed "Female Travis Tritt" from Freemont, CA
quit her high-paying corporate job for a shot at Nashville fame and
fortune. The 31 year-old says she never wants to work a desk job again.

Nicole Jamrose: A 33 year-old mother of two from Schererville, IN, Nicole
brings her folk-infused sound to the show. Nicole's Nashville Star
auditions marks her one and only contention for any talent show title and
was blown away to find out that she will be one of the ten finalists.
http://www.nwilive.com/band_display.php?Band=Jamrose

Kristen McNamera: A 20 year-old beauty from Napa Valley, Kristen brings a
spirited personality and a heart-tugging life story along with her
powerful voice and self-written songs. With a boyfriend in the US Army
awaiting deployment to Iraq, Kristen plans on wearing a yellow ribbon in
every episode in support of the US troops abroad.
http://www.kristenmcnamara.com/kristenmain.html

Casey Rivers: Casey is a native of Lindale, Texas and hopes to follow in
the footsteps of Lindale's other NASHVILLE STAR alum, Miranda Lambert.
Casey is 23 and claims he briefly dated Miranda in high school. He has
already shared the stage with country music greats Loretta Lynn and Willie
Nelson.
http://www.caseyrivers.com

Melanie Torres: Melanie is the 28 year-old ex-beauty queen from Terries,
NM with a voice to kill. She is bilingual, speaking English and Spanish,
and wore the Miss Albuquerque crown in 2000. After passing on the tiara,
Melanie moved to Nashville with nothing in her bank account destined to
make it big.

Congrats Chris. Are you allowed to post on the site during the show or will you be asked not to? I know when we've had other JPF members on the show they haven't been able to keep us updated. If not, have someone else keep us posted.

JPF members have done very well over the years on Nashville Star so hopefully you'll be the next success story!

Thank you Brian. As for posting while I'm on the show, I'm not sure yet. They've changed a lot of things this year, but we are still finding out about some of them. [Linked Image]

The first show airs on March 14th at 9:00 Central Time. I'm very excited about being on the show this year.

Chris,

I really believe we helped put Buddy Jewel over the top during the first Nashville Star. So we'll all be pulling for you as well. That year, I know Ande's good friend was also in the running and we were cheering him on as well. We'll be happy to give your first hand observations to our members if you're allowed to share.

Congratulations to all the finalists! I competed in the regional in Atlanta. It was quite an experience waiting 6 hours for a 30 second audition, but it was fun! Now that i've gotten my feet wet, I'll be back for more!!!
I also did 2 Colgate Country Showdown locals last year so I'm learning.
James

Hey Folks,

By the way, Jewels Hanson is also a JPF member who made the final 10. I haven't gotten to check the entire list against our member list, but I know I get emails from Jewel's so she's also a member. Now we have at least 2 members to watch!

I wanted to update this post since there was some questions. As you can see 2 of the 10 are JPF members, but I was also told last night that Nicole Jamrose might also be a JPF member, though she's not one that I have directly corresponded with that I remember.

So how did those 3 do on the first episode? I am going to have to set it up to record going forward.

I thought everyone did great. The level of comptetition is the strongest of any of the 4 seasons... and much stronger than the level of Idol this season. All performances rated anywhere from good to excellent... but unfortunately Jewels Hanson went home first. I think Chris and Nicole will probably stick around a while. Usually I can pick a top 3 from the first episode, but the contestants are so good, I can't call it this time around.

I thought they all did great, it's a bit too early to tell but the folks who stood out to me were Chris & Matt for the guys and Nicole and Kristen for the girls. Seriously if you guys can catch it try and watch, so much better than the other seasons.

Good Luck to them all.

Justin.
