Savannah Keyes of Utah was all set to take on the 'American Song Contest' stage. As she explained, Utah was a mix of the wild west with modern touches. It also had a lot of art to offer, mixing the old and the new together. Family played a big role in Keyes's life, especially her father, who often took her camping. Although her song, 'Sad Girl' said otherwise, she explained that the inspiration behind the song was just about expressing your emotions. As a woman in country music, she noted that there were women missing in the genre, which meant that they had to work harder to make their mark. Which is what Keyes was here to do, as she said she was ready to "blow the roof of the cussing place"!

Fans enjoyed her song -- 'Sad Girl'. "Ok, Savannah! This is a legit country diva ballad. Could be on the radio tomorrow. #AmericanSongContest" tweeted a fan. "Utah that was cute #AmericanSongContest" added another. "Savanna very pretty and cozy, sweet country song. Not sure how well it will do after following Nevada. #AmericanSongContest" asked another. "Very much here for Sad Girl Spring #AmericanSongContest" added another.
