NASH NEXT FINALISTS
Muddy Water was written by Beau Young after Hurricane Harvey and the flooding that took place in Texas and Louisiana. Thinking back to his own experiences with Hurricanes Lily, Rita, and the August Floods of 2016, Muddy Water tells the story of how the waters which impact our communities always bring a resurgence of new life to an area. He compares it to an almost religious experience and how the baptism by these Muddy Water reawaken our sense of community.
Emily Ortego – a 19 year old up and coming singer/songwriter looking to touch the hearts of the people around her with her powerful vocals and smooth guitar playing. This young woman from Opelousas, Louisiana has played guitar since she was 8 years young and has been singing for as long as she can remember. She grew up in the church – singing in the choir and altar serving – and is very passionate about her faith and God™s plan. Songwriting became her passion as the years passed, for she needed a way to express herself in a way she felt comfortable and heard. After graduating from Opelousas Catholic School in 2017, she began to take her music to the next level. Recently, she was awarded the Golden Ticket during Season Two of American Idol. The song that sent her to Hollywood was one she wrote with Kevin Montgomery and Barry Ancelot at the South Louisiana Songwriters Festival in Lafayette. It touches on her adoption and how she wants to find that missing harmony with her biological family.
Emily is currently a junior at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette majoring in Music Business, hoping to have a place in the industry after she earns her degree

Entertainer Justin Kelly had always dreamed that one day he could use his talent to entertain the masses. The most important thing through the whole thing was not to forget the values that his mother instilled in him at an early age. The last few years have been rocky, to say the least. That has not stopped Justin, His dream has started to come true for him, beyond his expectations. Justin has come to terms with the successes and the failures. The only real way to deal with that is to avoid getting carried away and to recognize the obligation that he has to the people who helped put him at the point where he is today, his friends, his family and country music fans, coming from a small town in Southern Louisiana, he learned what was most important to him.

The old adage that says ‘if it seems too good to be true it probably is, ‘was dead on.”
