Again this year KWUF in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, will play host to contestants of the Texaco Country Showdown. The 30th Annual Country Showdown is designed to find the most promising country music talent in America and to give these performers a chance to launch their professional music careers.
The Country Showdown begins each Spring with over 450 local talent contests sponsored by country music radio stations throughout the US. Winners advance to their respective State competitions held at leading fairs and expositions. Acts then compete for a $1,000 prize, the State Title and the opportunity to advance to one of five Regional Finals. It’s the last step before the prestigious National Final held at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. The audience cheers on the Regional Winners, as they compete for the Grand Prize of $100,000 and the National Title. A uniform judging system is used at all levels of competition to help ensure fairness.
This year, local competition will be held August 5, 2011, 5:00 p.m., at the Archuleta County Fair in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Call the KWUF at 970-264-5983 to get more information.
