Sara Ann Garrison, a local country singer/songwriter and a freshman at Cape Henlopen High School, became the youngest country singer to be named Nashville Universe’s Shooting Star of the Year. After being nominated early this fall with 20 other very talented hopefuls from around the country, Garrison rose to the top five and headed to Nashville for the Feb. 17 event.
Once in Nashville, Garrison received star treatment, beginning with a personal tour of downtown Nashville by producer/Vradio Nashville personality Mick Womack, who had her on stage singing at the Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge within the first couple of hours being in Nashville.
The awards show, which was held at the Silver Dollar Saloon in downtown Nashville, where Garrison arrived by limousine and walked the red carpet. Banjoman Todd Taylor and country singer Colt Ford were on hand. Garrison joined in with the Timothy Chance Band as they performed their hit single, "Ayo."
At home, Garrison keeps busy with her solo career, being half of a musical duo, Maybe Abilene, and putting together an up-and-coming teen band. Garrison also gives back to her community by performing at Boardwalk Buddy Walk events and Habitat for Humanity event.
She will be performing at a benefit from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m., Saturday, March 1, at the Marydel Fire Hall at the Cupids for Lindsay Stevens Benefit. For tickets and information, contact Debbie at 302-222-5500 or Amy at 302-257-0307.
