Country Showdown 2014

2014 Country Showdown

2014 Country Showdown

Formerly the Texaco Country Showdown, The Country Showdown is America’s largest country music talent show, which occurs annually.

The 2014 Country Showdown is an opportunity for up and coming performers to be discovered and share their talents in their local areas; hoping to gather national attention by making it to the final competition. They have the opportunity to gain experience, recognition, and popularity as they travel to different competitions throughout the United States.

The Showdown is open to any vocal and/or instrumental performer or group of up to seven members that has not performed on a record list of national record charts of Billboard within eighteen months.

The first local round: at Keyboard Galleria, three semi-finalists will be selected from performers. Saturday, June 21st at five o'clock

The second local round: semi-finalists perform at Concerts In The Park featuring last year's Country Showdown & KHTS Local, State, Regional, and National Finalist, Suzanne Harper.
The winner of this round will be the Local Winner. Saturday, July 19

The Local Winner will go on to State Finals at Knott’s Berry Farm, with a chance to move onto Regional and National competition to become this year’s champion with a $100,000.00 prize and recording contract. Last year's National Finals took place in January at the historical Ryman Auditorium, original home of the Grand Ole' Opry, and was hosted by LeAnne Rimes.
