The 2016 TodaysCountry94one Brand New Star Competition Grand Final was held on 29 July 2016 at the Central Coast Leagues Club. The 2016 winner was Toby Wells. Congratulations, Toby, on your win.

All of the performances on the night were first rate and the judges had a very difficult time in separating the entrants. However, there can only be one winner, and that was Toby.

Toby won the first prize of $3,000 in cash from sponsor, Central Coast Leagues Club.

Jesse McGrath and Sophie Youman were each awarded a one-on-one mentoring session with country music star, Gina Jeffreys.

Many thanks to the other sponsors: The Imperial Centre, Ferry’s Law Firm, Everglades Country Club, Club Wyong, CRS Publicity and Simon Johnson (Hillbilly Hut Studios).

And many thanks to all of the other very talented finalists: Sarah Lanser, Bob Arthur, Emma Jene, Joseph Arrua, Alicia Brock, Paul Crowder, Lexie Ross and Hayley Langley.
