Meet One Night Rodeo, The Next GAC Star! An American contemporary country band founded in Bradenton, FL, ONR is composed of Cory Hildreth (lead vocals, keys, guitar, and mandolin), Jack Tamburin (lead guitar, vocals), Duane Allison (bass guitar, vocals). Thirteen years and over 2,000 performances in their career has prepared ONR for their own launch into Country music stardom. Opening for superstars such as Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Montgomery Gentry is nothing new to this group of seasoned musicians who worked long and hard to get here.
One Night Rodeo most recently won the Great American Country and Music Nation's Next GAC Star competition. The band released their first single and video, 'Alive and Living', which has maintained its spot in the Top 20 Country Countdown on GAC TV, and currently remains on the Independent Music Network charts. The Next GAC Star allowed voters to pick who they wanted to hear and America crowned their winner, One Night Rodeo.
It is through The Next GAC Star that One Night Rodeo got the opportunity to work with legendary music producers Desmond Child and Victoria Shaw. The wealth of knowledge they received from these music professionals and the other celebrity mentors from the show has undoubtedly helped to polish their image and stage presence.
As winners of The Next GAC Star, ONR has already reached over 54 million viewers with the television exposure on GAC, and over 3.6 million hits to their MySpace profile, One Night Rodeo is primed to become a household name.
