NOMaD, a Western Pennsylvania-based country band, has won the Mello Yello One Track Find competition with its “American Boy” song, according to the band's website. NOMaD, which stands for North of Mason Dixon, won the $25,000 grand prize for the “American Boy” song and video, which is posted on Facebook and www.northofmasondixon.com. In May, the band was selected from thousands to participate in the One Track Find, which asks online voters to choose the act that could be the next big thing for music. In the video, NOMaD band members perform with footage of Pittsburgh in a song that celebrates small-town life.
