In anticipation of their first new music in six years, the band Collective Soul launched a contest challenging fans to record their own versions of songs from their new album 'See What You Started'. A local musician entered, and won.

Todd Mihan of Hyde Park won the weekly contest by recording all the instruments on a version of the new Collective Soul song 'This'.
