WALLS 102 Country Showdown

Showdown sponsors include:

Tim Gleason of Yorkville, winner of the WALLS 102 Country Showdown finals held on the Veranda at Starved Rock Lodge Tuesday, July 15, will compete in the state finals at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, at Starved Rock Lodge in Utica. The state finals have never before been held at Starved Rock Lodge.

"We couldn't pass up the chance when we were asked to host this event," said Andrea Yeruski, Lodge Food & Beverage Manager, "We think our competition is the best in the state, not only because of the quality of vocalists, but because of the unique and amazing setting overlooking Starved Rock and the Illinois River Valley."

The state finals at Starved Rock Lodge are sponsored by WALLS 102, Euclid Beverage/Miller Lite, Starved Rock Lodge, City of LaSalle and Dr. Ed Monroe.

Dog, from The Morning Doghouse on WALLS 102, will host the state finals.
