Nashville Teen Auditions for American Idol



    Ethan Kuntz, 16 of Nashville, attended the American Idol open call auditions for the farewell
    season back in August at Verizon Arena and his story will air on Thurs., Jan. 14 on Fox,
    according to his mother, Michale Kuntz. “We can’t say a lot about the details of audition due
    to a contract with Fox,” she added.
    Ethan has been playing music with the Spa City Youngbloods for a year and he is the lead
    guitarist/singer for the blues band made up of all youth. The band will be attending the
    International Blues challenge on Jan. 29 in Memphis for a youth showcase.
    She said that Ethan “loves the blues genre and studies the greats like Stevie Ray Vaughn, BB
    King and Allman brothers.”
    A watch party has been set for Jan. 7 and Jan. 14 at the Black Pearl in Mineral Springs, for
