New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 2019 is only half over, but it must feel like a dream for local Butler-area country singer, Gary Burk III. So far, Burk has had his latest single, "Friday Night" appearing on nationally recognized airplay charts. The song also hit the iTunes Top 20 country songs chart in Canada. His music has even been showing up on local jukeboxes. As of this release, "Friday Night" has been streamed over 20,000 times on Spotify. He is about to head to Memphis and Nashville for a series of interviews, performances, and TV appearances.

Now, Gary Burk III is happy to announce he has been chosen as one of twelve contestants in the 2019 "Pittsburgh Idol" competition. Contestants were selected from video performance entries that, according to the official contest rules, "best represent a high-quality voice and good showmanship video. Winners will be selected by a panel of Station employees who will evaluate and compare the Video Submissions." Burk will now perform at Kennywood during WTAE's "SummerFest." The winner of the contest will audition in front of "American Idol" executive producers, with a shot at appearing on the popular show.
"I feel honored to be selected as one of the people to represent Pittsburgh!" said Burk. "It's a great feeling to have this community on my side!! I can't wait to see what this competition holds for me."

ABOUT GARY BURK III: Hailing from Western Pennsylvania, Gary Burk III's musical journey began at age 9, while riding along with his dad to their family camp. There was a song playing on the radio…some old-time country tune that touched Gary in a way that would change his life forever. Drawing inspiration from his biggest influences, Alabama, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, Gary fronts his 3 piece band of outlaws, performing at events across the region. Gary's extensive collection of guitars includes a Custom Built Signature J&B Customs Tele-Style, as well as a Gibson Les Paul Robot Series In Manhattan Blue. He uses a Line 6 M16 module played through an Egnater Tweaker 40 amplifier. When he's not touring or recording, Gary enjoys spending time with his twin boys and two daughters. Gary Burk's new single, "Friday Night" reached the Top 20 iTunes country charts.
