The Fourth Annual Video Madness tournament is underway and for this year we have 12 competing videos from all levels of country stars, from superstars (Sara Evans, Tracy Lawrence) Rising stars (Jerrod Niemann) to upcoming stars (Joe Bachman, Tyler Farr). Sarah, Tracy and Jerrod are joined by Craig Campbell in earning first round byes due to their recent success, with Craig Campbell's previous success (winner or Runner-up each year) on each year of this contest gaining him the first round bye. After we ended the first round (Click here to view the first round videos), we had have Sara Evans, Tracy Lawrence, Jerrod Niemann and reigning MVM superstar Craig Campbell face off against the round one winners Joe Bachman, Tyler Farr, Austin Webb and Robby Johnson.

How Music Video Madness Works
It was a battle of epic proportions (ok, maybe at the not Marvel Comics level) as Joe Bachman's "Lookatchu" squared off against Robbie Johnson's "South Of Me" video and Tyler Farr's "Whisky In My Water" video faced off agaisnt Austin Webb's "Slip On By" video. After over 9,000 votes were cast amongst the final two games, Robby Johnson came out with a major victory and will face off against Austin Webb in the Championship Round this week to see who will follow Craig Campbell, Andy Gibson and Aaron Lewis in being crowned the winner of the Roughstock's Annual Music Video Madness.
While all these video votes are in good fun, we have a handful of prize packs to give away featuring swag (CDs and/or photos, shirts, hats, etc) from EACH artist in the contest so that means if you win that contest you will get something cool from each artist, not just one item from each of the artists.
