KRJC is proud to be the local host to the Annual Country Showdown!
Designed to find the most promising country music talent in the United States for the past thirty years, the Country Showdown gives aspiring artists a chance to launch their professional careers when thousands of performers compete annually for the Country Showdown title.
Each year, hometown talent contests sponsored by over five hundred local radio stations across the country pave the road to stardom. Local winners advance to over forty state contests where the prizes include $1,000 in cash and the opportunity to compete at one of five regional contests in the fall. The five regional winners receive an expense-paid trip to the national Final to compete for $100,000 and the coveted National Title.
It is an exciting community event that provides aspiring artists in our area an opportunity for state, regional, and national exposure while promoting a greater appreciation of country music.
Keep checking in to see when the next Country Showdown will be!
