Why Enter The Country Showdown? There are many reasons to enter the Country Showdown! First of all, it gives you a chance to get some serious stage experience. Sometimes this has been the only opportunity for an aspiring singer to get up and sing in front of someone other than their mom! If you write songs, this is a good place to have an audience hear those songs and to get some serious and honest feedback on the value of those songs.
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.
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 $20 entry fee which may be paid when you turn in your application.
