J Juliano with Adrienne Grove Wins the
Colgate Country Showdown Illinois State Final
Nashville, Tennessee, October 9, 2006 — After a tough round of competition, Cary’s J Juliano with Des Plaines’ Adrienne Grove walked away from the 25th Annual Colgate Country Showdown Illinois State Final with the state title and $1,000 in prize money. The Arcada Theater in St. Charles showcased eleven acts – who had won a local contest sponsored by radio stations throughout Illinois – enabling each to perform at the state level competition of America’s largest country music talent search.

WUSN of Chicago, Illinois sponsored the local competition where J Juliano with Adrienne Grove won prior to Sunday’s state level triumph. As an award-winning songwriter/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist, Juliano began guitar at just 5 years old. In 1998 he opened for Toby Keith in Chicago and realized his love of the Windy City. He began performing throughout the Southeast and Midwest, sharing the stage with Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Diamond Rio and Sawyer Brown, to name a few. When Juliano and his wife learned they were expecting their first child, he began “Little Nashville” – country music for kids that teaches important lessons and values with a bit of rock at the same time. “Little Nashville” went from the studio to the road, bringing Adrienne Grove into the mix. The singer/actress began belting out The Star-Spangled Banner also at a young age – 3. The Southwestern University graduate received a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education, and plays the guitar, flute and piano. She has performed with Starlight Theater, Park Ridge Gilbert and Sullivan Society, Savoy-aires and several others. Since joining forces in “Little Nashville,” Grove and Juliano have performed in front of thousands together. They have opened for Josh Gracin and have been honored with the title of Best Children’s Act of 2006 by the On the Waterfront Festival in Rockford. In Sunday’s competition, they rocked the crowd with Charlie Daniels’ The Devil Went Down to Georgia and an original piece – Dry County. Other acts – listed with their representing radio station – Andy Campbell KICK Quincy, Chris McGee

WOOZ Carterville, Kasie Stigers WKJT Effingham, Marie Spanos WALS Peru, Mal Rodgers WGEL Greenville, Chloe Li WLMD Macomb, Becky Blackaby WBBA Pittsfield, Xylynn Warren WRUL Carmi, Rachael Searfoss WGKY Metropolis and Lisa Perry WXCL Peoria.

J Juliano with Adrienne Grove will compete in the Midwest Regional at the Royal River Casino in Flandreau, South Dakota on October 28th to determine if they will advance to the National Final. The five regional winners from across the country will receive an all expense-paid trip to the National Final to compete for $100,000 and the coveted national title of Best New Act in Country Music. The National Final will be televised nationally in March and April 2007.

Throughout all four levels – local, state, regional and national – of competition a uniform judging system is used. The 1-10 point scoring system is used for the following categories: Marketability in Country Music, Vocal/Instrumental Ability, Originality of Performance; Stage Presence/Charisma and Talent with bonus points for song writing.
