The duo receives an incredible prize package: a check for $25,000, an opportunity to audition for BNA Records, their own tour bus and the opening slot for the final weekend of Kenny’s Poets & Pirates Tour 2008. When Kenny decided to reach out to young bands trying to get a foothold in country music, he found an amazing quality of talent "The future's in pretty good shape,” he says. “And it was really hard deciding on that one grand prize winner—that's how good these Next Big Stars were.”
