Country Showdown Legacy

The Country Showdown has created opportunities for thousands of Country Music artists for over 35 years. As the largest and longest running country music talent search, many of today’s popular artists such as Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks. Brad Paisley, Sara Evans, Neil McCoy and LeAnn Rimes got their start participating in this iconic Nashville based Country Music talent search.
The Country Showdown’s 36th year brings some exciting changes! Up and coming country music artists, singers and songwriters have the opportunity to participate in one or more of our 30 live Country Showdown events with the goal of advancing to our National Final and being named the “Best New Act in Country Music”. Through the help of over 400 partnering radio stations, we scour America each season looking for talented aspiring country music stars right in their own hometowns. Artists entering the 36th season of the Country Showdown have the added benefit of access to a full year of mentoring and career enhancing opportunities. Those who make it to our National Final achieve this success through their hard work and determination by creating an engaging live show, development of their musical talent and learning to market and manage their music careers. Our National Final winner will receive a career boosting prize package totaling over $100,000!
All of us at the Country Showdown are excited to work with you throughout your time participating in our Showcase events and look forward to leading you on the road to opportunity.
