NASHVILLE, TN. (WSFA) - An Autauga County country songwriter, whose story we shared a couple weeks ago, made it to the finals in the Nashville Rising song competition.
16-year old Reid Shackelford won 50 percent of the on-line votes but not enough total votes for the grand prize. Shackelford was among four finalists and played four songs.
Even though Shackelford didn't win the grand prize of a new guitar and a possible recording contract, he received an invitation to perform at the Smokey Mountain Songwriters Festival in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, this fall.
Our congratulations to Reid Shackelford!
