Chad Tingle of Saline showed how great a singer he is with a great old religious classic as he was named Dixie Entertainer of the Year Saturday night at the Dixie Center for the Arts.
Tingle’s version of “How Great Thou Art” brought the crowd to their feet in the fourth performance of the night in the Dixie Horizon Entertainer Search. A total of 21 acts competed for the right to be named Dixie Entertainer of the Year.
But after competing last year and placing third, Tingle wasn’t going to return this year until a little pressure from organizer C.J. Matlock changed his mind.
