A local musician and teacher at Fayetteville High School is competing for a chance to perform at an official Grammy Awards party later this month.

Barrett Baber, 33, was selected by a panel of celebrity judges as one of 40 finalists in CBS’s Grammy Gig of a Lifetime contest after being nominated by a local fan.

Fans can vote up to 50 times per day for their favorite artist through Jan. 10. As of Friday morning, Baber was trending in first place.

If he wins, Baber will open for The Neighbourhood at Club Nokia in Los Angeles as part of the 56th annual Grammy Awards week festivities. This year’s Grammy Awards show is set for Jan. 26.

Baber released his fourth album, Battlefield Us, in September 2013.
