Back in December, Georgia Works highlighted the Belk Southern Musician Showcase. More than two thousand musicians competed for a chance to win the opportunity to perform at a Belk sponsored/Live Nation amphitheater in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, or Raleigh along with their song being featured in a Belk television commercial.

Congratulations goes out to Atlanta's Gabbie McGee. Gabbie won the Jazz music category and will be going on the Southern Musician Showcase tour this summer.

"We have been incredibly impressed by the talent we have seen through the Southern Musician Showcase," says Jon Pollack, Belk executive vice president of marketing, sales promotion and eCommerce. "We are so proud of these winning Southern musicians, and are looking forward to giving them the opportunity of a lifetime" (PRNewswire).

Additional winners were Emily Hackett from Nashville, Laney Jones from Florida, Jackie Venson from Texas, the Christian Lopez Band from W. Virginia, and Surviving Allison from Mississippi.
