KCRT in Trinidad, CO is hosting a local Country Showdown competition on Saturday, July 16th at the Mount Saint Carmel Catholic Church Fair, 911 Robinson Avenue, in Trinidad. The contest will take place at the outdoor band shell at the fair from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m.
The local Trinidad winner will get a cash prize and will move on to the Colorado State show to be held in Copper Mountain on Sunday, September 4th where the Showdown will be the opening act for a big-name national country act like Wynnona!
There are no age limits to enter the Country Showdown, a competition that is looking for singers from all walks of life. Extra points can be given if you write your own songs as well. Contestants are encouraged to perform their own originals but covers are welcomed, too. A contestant may sing to “tracks” or they may play their own instrument (or have someone play to accompany them) at the local level. Each contestant may perform two short songs (7 minute time limit for the whole performance).
For more information, please go to www.CountryShowdown.com and click on the “Contestants” tab. Or you may call Jackie Phillips at KBKZ, 719-846-3355 to discuss with him. There is a one-time entry fee which may be paid when you turn in your application.
