The votes have been counted, and Farewell Angelina have been revealed as the winners of Taste of Country’s RISERS Hot Seat poll!

The harmony quartet joined Taste of Country News host Ania Hammer at the Taste of Country studio on Wednesday (Feb. 1) for a reveal on Facebook Live.

The innovative Hot Seat poll let our readers decide the final artist to include in the star-making program. Nicole Witt, Andrea Young, Lisa Torres and Lauren Lucas won the fan vote by a whopping margin of more than 20,000.

The group celebrated by taking fan questions, singing one of their songs and even taking a challenge to sing some randomly chosen songs live a capella, showing off the personality and crazy vocal chops that brought their fans out to vote in droves.

The full list of 2017 RISERS will be revealed on March 1. The newly crowned Hot Seat winners will get the same star treatment as the RISERS who were chosen by an advisory board made up of radio professionals, talent bookers, managers, streaming service providers and digital media members. The red carpet exposure includes video performances and interviews, photo shoots and exclusive coverage throughout 2017. No other new artist platform in country music will give this much attention to the best and brightest talent in Nashville and beyond.
