This Mainer has a chance to join the ranks of fellow 207 native Kalie Shorr as a Taste of Country RISER. 

Brett Young, Devin Dawson and Kalie Shorr. Other than being country stars, what do they have in common? They all began their climb to country stardom as Taste of Country RISERS. A new crop of RISERS has been selected from across the country, and Maine is home to one of those hopefuls.

Chad Haynes hails from Mexico, Maine. His talent was discovered by our sister station 103.7 The Peak. Haynes has been selected as a finalist for Taste of Country's first Hometown RISER competition. The winner will get airtime the Taste of Country Nights radio show, and a featured interview on Taste of Country.

You can vote once per day until June 18, at TasteOfCountry.com.

Catch Taste Of Country Nights weekday nights at 7 here on Q106.5.
