From Music City USA to Miss USA!
Alexandra Harper, who is one-half of the Music City cousins on the CMT docu-series, competed in the annual Miss USA pageant Monday night (May 21) in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana, and finished as a Top 10 finalist.
Alexandra was first named among the Top 15 women to compete in the bathing suit competition, which earned her a spot in the Top 10. She then competed in the evening wear round, wearing a custom champagne Jovani gown.
“I didn’t grow up doing pageants," she tells CMT.com. "I didn’t grow up putting hairspray in my hair or teasing my hair, and so it was something I really worked hard for. It’s definitely a moment that will never be forgotten for sure.”
Ultimately, Miss Nebraska Sarah Rose Summers snagged the overall title of Miss USA. Miss North Carolina and Miss Nevada rounded out the top 3.
Instead of celebrity judges, a selection committee of five female leaders were chosen to judge the pageant in 2018.
Lee Brice also performed during the event.
