KRJC is proud to be the local host to the Annual Texaco Country Showdown!
Designed to find the most promising country music talent in the United States for the past thirty years, the Texaco Country Showdown gives aspiring artists a chance to launch their professional careers. Thousands of performers compete annually for the Country Showdown title.
Each spring hometown talent contest 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.
“We consider the Texaco Country Showdown one of the most anticipated events in the country music each year,” said Stacey Sawyer General Manager of KRJC 95.3FM. “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.
