Last night, Gator Country found out who was the absolute best out of eight finalist inside the Caribbean Cove at the Isle of Capri. I'm just happy I was not picked to be a judge!

That had to be one of the toughest karaoke competitions to decide on a winner. But, a winner was chosen and his name is Greg Swann!

Greg's song choice was "Believe" by Brooks and Dunn and let me tell you... his performance would have made Kix and Ronnie smile.

For the last several weeks, Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas residents had been putting their singing skills to the test to win a share of $10,000! Last night Greg Swann won the karaoke competition, the title of Gator Rising Star, plus $5,000.

Thanks to all who competed in the Gator Rising Star brought to you by the Isle of Capri and Gator 99.5.
