“It was really exciting,” Burrows said, “and one of the best days of my life.” She added that the concert was an incredible event, and that her mission is to take the lessons she learned from the performance and use them to become better.
“I cannot describe how cool it was singing to my hometown,” she said. “I’m learning that working very hard on my music allows me to continually improve.”
Burrows believes she can win the entire competition “If I keep pushing hard,” but is focusing on readying herself for the immediate challenge of the state, regional and national finals. “I’m super excited and I am looking forward to it,” she said. “I can’t wait and I can’t describe how cool it is to be in this competition.”
The local round of the competition was sponsored by local businesses: Reeves Complete Auto Center and Keyboard Galleria.
Last year’s KHTS winner and two-time Country Showdown finalist Suzanne Harper and her band, Talk Like June, was the headliner at Saturday night’s show, performing after Burrows, Aigner and James.
