LeAnn Rimes hosted the finals competition and sang two songs from her latest album, Family, during the show. Nash Street, which performed two original tunes, was judged the winner over the other four regional finalists—Carrie Joy, Eldon Johnson, Christy Suggett and Trevor Panczak—and took home the $100,000 grand prize. The show was taped before a live audience at the Ryman and will be telecast at a later date.
