The Stephens County Frontier Days wrapped up Saturday evening, May 6, at the city park pavilion when Anthony Kelly was named the 2023 Breckenridge Idol, following his performance of Chris Stapleton’s song “Cold.”

In second and third place were Jordyn Hope Gregory and Chasity Hash Blevins, respectively. Kelly won the top prize of $1,000; Gregory won $350; and, Blevins won $150.

The singing competition was sponsored by the Breckenridge McDonald’s restaurant, as well as the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, and hosted by Heather Bronkhorst and Alycia Duran.

This year’s contestants and the songs they performed were:

  • Anthony Kelly — “Cold”
  • Jordyn Hope Gregory — “Tequila Does”
  • Chasity Hash Blevins — “My Church”
  • Kendra Mayfield — “Piece of My Heart”
  • Cabel Perkins — “Stay”
  • Daniel Sims — “Can’t Help Falling in Love”

The judges for the competition were Charles Carter, Kathy Trammel and Russell Brock.

This year was the first Breckenridge Idol since 2019. The competition, along with Frontier Days, was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in 2022 the singing contest was postponed but never rescheduled.

The Breckenridge Texan will have more news and photos from Frontier Days as soon as possible.
