REAL COUNTRY on USA Network: Artist Questionnaire
Real Country features the next generation of country artists competing along the path of the country music legends who came before them.
We're currently booking the best up and coming acts in ALL Country music genres. Set in Nashville, legendary Country music artists Shania Twain and Jake Owen will host a series of invitation-only showcases, where the next generation of Country music stars will be able to make their names known.
We're looking for emerging artists that are on the verge of breaking through — up and comers who are ready for that exposure to launch them even further!
Each week, notable Country music icons will select one act from each showcase of acts. The winning acts move on to the grand finale to perform for a possible CASH PRIZE.
