Will Montana Make it to the Next Round of American Song Contest?
Jonah Prill is representing Big Sky Country in a new NBC competition. The American Song Contest is a new show hosted by Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson that is airing during primetime on Mondays. It features artists from each state and all US territories. Each state is represented, regardless of the music genre. What better way to represent Montana than with a talented country artist like Jonah.
Jonah is a country artist from Billings that has generated a large following on TikTok not just because of his singing talent but also because of his love for photographing the beauty that is Montana. His TikTok account has generated over 800,000 followers and over 13 million likes. That is an impressive number regardless of where you are from.
Prior to his first performance this past Monday night, Jonah shared how much he loves representing Montana in the competition. He talked about how beautiful the state is, and how he even has been charged by a grizzly bear. It doesn't get much more "Montana" than that.
Jonah says his song "Fire it Up," is "the song of the summer. It brings the sense of a super hot summer day. Windows down cruising. And just having fun."
