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 the website below and click on the “Contestants” tab. There is a one-time entry fee (usually no more than $20) which may be paid when you turn in your application.
