Nashville’s New Country Star Contest Set For July 30 In Downtown Nashville

Winner’s song to be featured on syndicated radio show

If you’re a new music artist looking for a chance to have your songs heard on the radio, it’s not everyday that an opportunity falls in your lap.

A new syndicated radio show called Nashville’s New Country with Chuck and Steve is hoping to widen that gap. “The show already features artists like Sunny Sweeney, Josh Thompson and Ashton Shepherd,” according to Keith Michaels, executive producer for the show. “But we are looking to expand that opportunity for thousands of others who are looking for their break and their chance to be heard.”

Nashville’s New Country with Chuck and Steve kicked off the Nashville’s New Country Star contest on their website Monday. The site is open to submissions from new country hopefuls until July 24, 2011.

“We’re going to go through all the entries from the website and narrow those down to the best 100,” said Michaels. “Those top 100 will be invited to audition the morning of July 30 at a location in downtown Nashville.”

Michaels added that the top 100 will be narrowed to a field of 20. Those 20 acts will be invited back for a last chance audition during an afternoon session. And, from the Top 20, will be chosen five acts to compete that evening for the first-ever Nashville’s New Country Star Contest at the Fiddle And Steel Guitar Bar at 10 p.m. in downtown Nashville.

If you are interested in auditioning for the contest, please enter online at before the deadline of July 24, 2011. Please note that you must have a video audition loaded to YouTube with a link on the application to be eligible to enter. The contest is open to individual acts, as well as groups. The winner will hear one of their original songs played on the show around the world and also win a recording session with our studio in downtown Nashville. Nashville’s New Country with Chuck and Steve is also available in podcast format via iTunes.
