If you love to sing, can carry a tune, and have always wanted to showcase your vocal talent in front of the masses, we've got a singing competition with your name all over it!

Townsquare Media radio stations 98.1 The Hawk, 99.1 The Whale and Wild 104 have joined forces with Touch of Texas to host a huge singing competition in Binghamton this spring.

At the end of our singing competition, the first place winner will walk away with a thousand dollars, and a weekend at either the Taste of Country Music Festival or at Mountain Jam. But that's not all- prizes will also be awarded to the people who place second and third.

In order to be eligible for the competition, you'll need to sing in one of the five Preliminary Parties, which will be held over the next five Fridays (2/10, 2/17, 2/24, 3/3 and 3/10) at Touch of Texas on Upper Front Street in Binghamton. Doors open at 6pm and the singing starts at 7pm during the weekly Preliminary Parties.

When you arrive at our Preliminary Party, you'll register your name when you arrive at Touch of Texas. People will be randomly drawn for the chance to sing. At the end of the night on each of these Preliminary Parties, one person will win $100 based on audience reaction and will also become a contestant. If you don't get a chance to sing this week, your name will be carried over to next week when the random selections will begin again.

On March 24th, 40 people who have sung during the first five weeks of Preliminary Parties will be randomly selected to become contestants in the singing competition along with five Preliminary Party winners. If you sing at one of the Preliminary Parties but don't show up at Touch of Texas on March 24th you will NOT move forward as a contestant even if your name is drawn.

If your name is drawn on March 24th, you'll sing, and then the voting portion of the contest will begin on Friday, March 31st when the 45 contestants sing again. Five people will then be eliminated each week. The final ten contestants will perform on Friday, May 19th, the final voting will run through May 25th, and those ten left standing will perform again on May 26th as the winners are announced.

If you have any questions about this competition or how the elimination process works, please reach out to Touch of Texas at 607-771-1000.
