They say that if you want to make it in the music business, you need one of two things:

  1. You need a "big break"
  2. You need to know someone in the music business who can give you that "big break."

We know that there is plenty of local talent here in KICKS 105.5 land, and you helped us find them! We received hundreds of entries, which have been narrowed down to five fantastic local musicians competing for their shot at becoming the winner of KICKS 105.5's Taste of Country Risers 2017.

The local artist/band that receives the most votes will earn a spot in the national Risers competition that is being conducted by our friends at Taste of Country for a chance to be crowned one of the nation's most up and coming country act.

Watch the videos from the finalists, and then cast your vote in the poll below.

Voting will end at noon on Friday, December 22. Good luck to all of our incredible country acts!
