Hendersonville singer going 'straight to Hollywood' for American Idol

Hendersonville's own 17-year singing phenom is going "straight to Hollywood."

Good Morning America hosts announced Friday that voters nationwide chose Meghan Woods from among three finalists whose performance was aired Wednesday night at the CMA country music awards show.

"You know, I just want to be the best artist that I can be and the best role model that I can be," Woods told WLOS-Ch. 13 News this week.

Her mother, Erica, told the television station: "She has always wanted to make a difference with her music. And she's always said she doesn't care who she sings too as long as she's singing and that she makes a difference with that."

Meghan wrote on Facebook Thursday night that her flight had been canceled because of the snowstorm in New York City. GMA hosts interviewed her via livestream instead.
