• Alumna a finalist for Next Great American Country Star

    Megan ConnerBaylor alumna Megan Conner is one of six finalists to become The Next GAC Star, as she competes on the American Idol-like show airing on the Great American Country (GAC) cable network.

    If the name sounds familiar, you might have seen her on stage at Baylor. A performance major, Conner starred in several musicals and other plays while a student, and she initially moved to New York City looking to continue her performing career. After a detour into fitness training, Conner was discovered there by Paul Vance (the writer of such songs as “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” and “Catch a Falling Star”), who encouraged her to give country music a try.

    The finals of The Next GAC Star are slated to air on GAC Sept. 3 and 10 at 8 p.m. CT; mark your calendars now! In the meantime, check out audio and video clips of Conner’s work on her MySpace and MusicNation web sites.

    Sic ’em, Megan!
