A new country music singing competition will be airing on the USA Network.  It’s called “Real Country” and it will be hosted by Shania Twain and Jake Owen.

According to the USA Network, each hour-long episode, Twain and Owen hand-select emerging solo artists, duos and groups to perform in showcases that spotlight the traditions, songs and themes of specific country genres. The best artists from each showcase will perform in a grand finale for a chance to be named one of country music’s next breakout acts.

Owen said the show will help young talent. “Country music truly seems to be the healing factor in a lot of people’s lives. I will always be grateful for music, whether I’m performing or listening, and I want to encourage up-and-coming artists to tell their stories, find their audiences and make their mark in country music with the same guidance that artists have given to me throughout my journey.”

The show is now accepting performance applications at realcountry.castingcrane.com or via email at [email protected].
