Andy Griggs First Country Artist Ever to Play in World Series of Poker- Outlasts the Pros!
Montage Music Group's Andy Griggs made his sponsor DoylesRoom.net proud as the first-ever country artist to participate in the 2008 World Series of Poker, held in Las Vegas last week. Griggs began the tournament with $20,000 in chips and was advised by his trainers that he would be doing well if he ended the first day with $10,000-$15,000. By the end of the day, he had more than doubled his money, with $51,050 in chips!
By the third day of play, Griggs was the only celebrity left in the tournament, and lasted three rounds until he went all in with a pair of 5's and the other player bested him with a pair of 6's on the flop. Impressively, he finished in the top 12 percent of players in the world renowned tournament.
Griggs received a tremendous amount of media coverage during the event, and fans can check out the tournament on ESPN as it airs every Tuesday beginning July 22nd. He kicked off Day Two of the tournament with a performance of the National Anthem, and also performed a track, the fitting, "It's All About The Money," from his new Montage Music Group album THE GOOD LIFE, on July 5th.
