Up and coming country music artists, singers and songwriters have the opportunity to participate in one or more of their 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, they 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.

The Showdown is open to vocal and/or instrumental performers, individuals, or groups of up to seven members who have not performed on a record listed in the national record charts of Billboard within eighteen months preceding local competition.
