Angela Hacker has won Nashville Star 5, defeating her brother, Zac, who was the runner-up. David St. Romain came in third place.
The Hackers’ mother, Susan, unsurprisingly told the TimesDaily, “Neither one of them lost. If anything, they’re both winners.” What was she going to say? I always knew my son was a loser?
Although Angela was popular throughout the competition, which began and concluded within the time it takes American Idol 6 to get through a single montage, she said backstage, “I refused to believe I was going to be the one. I was really overwhelmed when she called out my name. I’m excited this has happened. I think it’s going to sink in sometime.”
The four finalists will tour the country starting in July.
