Semi-Finals: 4 PM, June 29, at Keyboard Galleria Music Center
Finals: 6 PM, July 13, at Concerts in the Park at Central Park
How To Enter:
The contestants must submit a demo of their music to firstname.lastname@example.org  by the morning of June 27th.
Of those submissions, ten acts will be chosen to compete in the preliminary round at Keyboard Galleria Music Center. Of those ten, three finalists will be selected to perform one song at the last local competition, which will be held at Santa Clarita’s free Concerts in the Park  on Bouquet Canyon Road, Saturday, July 13th.
The winner will be chosen by three celebrity judges at the event and then move on to various state and regional competitions in hopes of reaching the 32nd Annual Texaco Country Showdown  in Nashville, Tennessee.
KHTS will be sponsoring one of the three finalists who will compete at the Concerts in the Park. Last year, KHTS sponsored the band that won the local round held at Concerts in the Park and eventually went all the way to win the grand prize at the Texaco Country Showdown in Nashville. Poor Man’s Poison  will come back to its roots and headline at the July 13th Concerts in the Park with the finalists.
Other past winners of the local, state and regional competitions leading to the Texaco Country Showdown  include Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks, Martina McBride, Sarah Evans, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, and Billy Ray Cyrus.
