NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Texas mother of five is the new
"Nashville Star."
Melissa Lawson beat fellow finalist Gabe Garcia on Monday night
for the title on the country music reality series. Shawn Mayer came
in third.
The 32-year-old Lawson was overjoyed at winning, shouting "Oh
my God!" She then performed her new single "What If It All Goes
Right." The song is scheduled to be played on country radio
Tuesday morning.
Lawson wins a record contract after performing in Nashville for
11 weeks.
The series has launched the careers of Miranda Lambert, Buddy
Jewel and Chris Young. It switched to NBC this year after five
seasons on cable's USA Network.
