Kanosha Pass, a band from Louisville, Colo., earned a trip to the Nebraska State Fair by taking first place in the Country Showdown talent contest Aug. 14 at the Chase County Fair.
The three-man group performed one original song and one Rascal Flats song to win $100 and the chance to compete in Lincoln Aug. 23.
Local contestants have the opportunity to advance on to the national final if they win the regional contest at the State Fair.
Past winners have included Martina McBride, Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert and Billy Ray Cyrus.
Second place and $50 went to 11-year old Morayah Cupp of Champion. Third place and $25 went to Tazalea Scott of Westerville.
