The nets have been cut down, the final four is over, and the Country Cutie Madness Brackets have closed.  After all the votes, just as sometimes happens in the NCAA, a Cinderella pulled off the big win.  Congratulations to Shawna Thompson of Thompson Square for beating the rest of the competition.

Shawna defeated some serious challengers to make it here.  She advanced against Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler, and Jennifer Nettles.  Big props to Thompson Square for voting like crazy.

And I can't forget the great Jennifer Nettles fans that fought hard but in the end came up just short.
