Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Nashville singer/songwriter Justin Nault was a finalist on the premiere episode of Budweiser’s new show called “The Big Time” on Saturday January 21st.
It was the first international television appearance for the 25 year old, whose debut album “It’s Just Me” was released in May of 2011. Justin was one of 11 contestants selected from thousands of singer/songwriters from around the globe to compete in the semi-final round for the show in Los Angeles last May. He was one of just three contestants chosen to compete on The Big Time’s Music episode. The hour long music episode was filmed in Las Vegas and featured an acapella version of the national anthem, a jingle writing contest, and a final performance in front of a live audience. Budweiser’s The Big Time series will run for 7 weeks on ABC each Saturday at 3PM EST and is designed to give relatively unknown people from a variety of fields including music, cooking, race car driving, and various sports, the opportunity to make it to the top of their chosen field and perform in a major venue. Justin came in second in the final round. More information on The Big Time is available at: http://www.pwrnewmedia.com/2012/anheuser-busch/bud_united/pages/gallery.html
