Nashville, TN…January 27, 2011...This year the Rock & Worship Roadshow, which launches this Friday in Cape Girardeau, MO, is giving fans a chance to be a part of the show by presenting a Battle of the Bands contest in select tour markets, which can be found here.

To compete in The Battle of the Bands contest, listeners submit their music and youtube videos to their local radio station and the station narrows down contestants to a final three. The music from the top three finalists is passed along to the Roadshow artists who pick the winning act to perform a two-song set, 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the Rock & Worship Roadshow in the listeners' city.

The first set of finalists were recently chosen and hail from Tennessee, Texas and Pennsylvania. A Nashville-based band was ultimately announced as the winner, and will take the stage next weekend in Huntsville, AL.

“The Battle of the Bands contest is a great opportunity for our listeners and for us to learn about the talent in our audience,” says Kris Spain from 88.1 Way-FM in Huntsville. “We are glad to help discover and encourage up-and-coming talent. The station received over 30 entries from local bands and those in other states. Most bands dream of opening for a concert like this, and we are glad to offer them the chance!”

The all-star cast on the 3rd Annual Rock & Worship Roadshow includes MercyMe, Jars of Clay, Thousand Foot Krutch, Matt Maher and The Afters, with hip-hop artist LeCrae joining the lineup starting February 24. The Compassion International sponsored event will entertain audiences in major cities such as Chicago, Colorado Springs and Phoenix and more while on the 25-city tour.
