Matt Mason has been crowned the winner of CMT’s Next Superstar. Matt, from Fairland, Ind., will receive a record deal with Warner Music Nashville’s Elektra imprint and will be the opening act for CMT on Tour this fall, headlined by Luke Bryan and sponsored by the network.

The winner’s finale performance will also run as a music video on CMT and cmt.com. "It’s all very surreal. I've wanted this for so long. I couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity and look forward to making the most of it. Huge thanks to everyone who voted for me," said Matt in a statement. 

Another crop of singing and songwriting talent will have the chance to compete when CMT’s Next Superstar returns in late 2011/early 2012.
