First, Louisiana. Next up, the whole United States.

Lafayette's own Erin Edmiston is ready for one of  the biggest adventures of her life, heading to Las Vegas for the nearly three week competition leading up to the Miss U.S.A. pageant.

The stunningly beautiful Miss Louisiana USA is now on her way to the left coast for all the preliminary activities before the big event on Sunday, June 3rd.

Before she left Acadiana for Vegas, Erin was kind enough to stop by and visit with us here on the Bruce & the Kennel Club show. Listen to our conversation. Pay particular attention on how you can help her crack the top 16!
