A couple years ago, Traverse City singer Drew Hale burst onto the country music scene when he won the national Country Showdown competition in Nashville. He got a $100,000 prize and the title of Best New Act in Country Music.
Here’s the irony — before that, Drew never really considered himself to be a country artist.
That’s all changed now as Drew fronts his own band — The Drew Hale Band — and brings a northern flair to his original country music.
Tonight, Drew Hale performs a solo show tonight at State Street Marketplace, in Traverse City.
