I don't know, but guessing you'll also be able to catch it later on the GAC website.

Here are some more photos from the taping of the stage portion of the show last Monday night at the Deadwood Mountain Grand.

Andy Gibson. Learn more about him at his website. Unfortunately for us South Dakotans, this is not the Andy Gibson from Sioux Falls.

Bradley Gaskin. Learn more about him at his website.

Probably one of the coolest things that happened Monday night was an impromptu jam session when Big Kenny Alphin of Big & Rich and Nick Hoffman of The Farm joined Bradley on stage.

Speaking of The Farm, here they are - Krista Marie, Damien Horne and Nick Hoffman. You can see my photo from two posts ago on The Farm Website.

The Farm really impressed me and I think they've got a bright future ahead. Here's another shot of Krista.

Thompson Square was a crowd favorite. They are husband and wife duo Keifer and Shawna Thompson.

After their Christmas tune duties, Thompson Square did an acoustic version of their hit "Are You Going to Kiss Me or Not?" With 12 awards show nominations in 2011, Thompson Square is also on the rise in the music industry.

With other performances filmed throughout the Black Hills, including Tracy Lawrence on the 1880 Train, the TV show should be a lot of fun to see and a great promotion for South Dakota to a national audience.
