CROWDS have again flocked, boots and all to the Urban Country Music Festival in Caboolture.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Division three councillor, Greg Chippendale said the weekend had included some magnificent musical talent and entertainment.

"Thousands of families and country music fans made the most the sunny weather converging on the four day country music event," he said.

"The Friday and Saturday night concerts starring Lee Kernaghan, Shannon Noll and more proved a hit along with Friday's Rodeo and Sunday's Urban Blaze Concert.

"For many festivalgoers their days were spent enjoying the entertainment at the Caboolture Historical Village, which included a host of entertainment including Urban favourite Guy Mclean in the Stockman's arena. Monday's Gospel and The John Cash & Friends tribute show also drew huge crowds at the Village."

Tomorrow's stars were given a chance to shine throughout the weekend, through busking, the walk up stage and the festival's Voice of Urban Country talent search.

"A big congratulations goes out to Melissa Patridge of Morningside, who took out our top prize at this year's Voice of Urban Country on Sunday night," Cr Chippendale said.

Melissa has grown up with country music and after winning the talent search is looking forward to furthering her music career and recording her first single. Hayley Wilson of Aspley won the competition's seniors title, with Taylor Moss of Noosa crowned the junior winner.

Brie Walford took out first place in the busking competition, with Jahmarley Dawson taking out the peoples choice award .

Cr Chippendale said the event owes its success to not only the council staff involved in organising the weekend, but the backing of local businesses, sponsors and of course our hard working and dedicated volunteers.

"A big thanks also goes to our local radio station 101.5fm and the Historical Village and its volunteers."
