Angela Hacker was named the winner of the 2007 Nashville Star competition, Thursday evening, March 1.

Angela defeated her brother Zac and the third finalist David St. Romain. She becomes the second female artist to take the Nashville Star title, as Erika Jo won in 2005. With her victory, Angela wins a recording contract with WBR Nashville and a new Chevy Silverado. “I’m just excited,” a tearful Angela told the media after the show. “It’s not going to sink in until later.” The season finale of the country talent competition, which aired on the USA Network, featured Angela’s performance of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” and show co-host Jewel reprising her hit “Foolish Games.”
