Country Showdown is the largest Country music talent search in America. It’s designed to discover the most promising country music talent in the nation and to give 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. In Monroe County, the sponsoring radio station is Big Dog 103.5, WUUF. The Monroe County Fair has been selected as the venue for the local finals. The event will take place between 2-5PM on Saturday August 6th at the fairgrounds (Northampton Park, Spencerport, NY)
Local winners advance to the State competitions. Acts then compete for a $1,000 prize, the State Title and the opportunity to advance to one of five Regional Finals. Its the last step before the prestigious, televised National Final. The audience cheers on the Regional Winners, as they compete for the Grand Prize of $100,000 and the title of “Best New Act in Country Music.” For more information on Country Showdown, including information on how to enter, click here.
The event is being sponsored by Salvatore’s Spencerport and Rohrbach’s Brewing
