The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is pleased to announce that Stephanie Nash of Chapel Hill, Tenn., is the winner of the 9th annual National Anthem Contest, sponsored by Norbrook®. Nash will sing the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the 2022 Cattle Industry Convention in Houston during the Opening General Session on Feb. 1, as well as at the Cowboy Comedy Club event on Feb. 3.
Nash grew up in California on her family’s dairy farm and began singing in church. After her family moved the farm to Tennessee, Nash’s music career blossomed with new opportunities in the country music capital of Nashville. Nash continues to work on her family’s farm, pursue her music career and advocate for agriculture. She developed the YouTube series “The Life of a Farmer” to showcase the farmers and ranchers across the country who work every day year-round to put food on family dinner tables.
“I’m passionate about agriculture and music, and I love writing songs that connect people with the agriculture community,” said Nash. “Singing at convention gives me the opportunity to combine both interests and share my love with others.”
As the winner of the National Anthem Singing Contest, Nash will receive roundtrip airfare to Houston, hotel room for three nights, convention registration, a meet-and-greet hosted by Norbrook®, plus a pair of boots, jeans and a shirt from Roper or Stetson. Online voting by the public determined the winner.
