SHERMAN, TX - A Texoma band is making a big hit in the Texas music scene. If you're into local music, you may have heard of them.

Out of about 100 bands, The Dustin Perkins Band has made it to the top 5 finals in the Shiner Rising Star contest. The competition is hosted by Dallas radio station 95.3 "The Range."

The winner will be determined at tomorrow night's concert at Love and War in Plano starting at 7 o'clock. That band will get a contract with Shiner Records and a cover on Texas Music Magazine.

The Dustin Perkins Band is made up of all local guys who've been playing together for a year and a half. Perkins says they've put in a lot of work to get to this point, and because the judges will consider audience approval, they can use all the support they can get.

"I feel like this past year has really been a big step for us musically. I feel like I've come a long way in the past year," Perkins says.

The Dustin Perkins Band will release their new record in January 2012. If you'd like to pre-order it, check the link below.
