A star-studded cast of Georgia’s favorite celebrities and musical guests will appear in an hour-and-a-half-long special, counting down the top four winners of the Georgia Lottery’s All Access Music Search. Entertainment Tonight correspondent Kevin Frazier will host the live show at 8 p.m. Friday.

Celebrities, including multi-Grammy winning songwriter-producer and musician Dallas Austin; 2011 Grammy-nominee songwriter-producer and musician Clay Cook of the Zac Brown Band; singer-songwriter and radio personality Monica; and country rock singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins will provide musical talent. Famed actress-singer and dancer Jasmine Guy will choreograph the primetime show.

In this special episode the Georgia Lottery will reveal the top four musical finalists of the Georgia Lottery’s All Access Music Search. Those finalists will head to Hollywood to record a track at the legendary Capitol Records Tower. Country, rock, pop/R&B and hip-hop/rap are the musical genres.

One winner in each genre will be determined, in part, by an online public poll at www.galottery.com/musicsearch. Online voting ended Wednesday.

Auditions were held in Atlanta, Columbus, Macon and Savannah with three finalists in the categories of country, rock, pop/R&B and hip-hop/rap.

Country finalists are: Julie Gribble (Atlanta); Hannah Thomas (Covington); and Jessi Scott (LaGrange). Rock finalists are: Rusted Soul (Atlanta); theKey (Macon); and Three Quarter Ale (Atlanta).
