The Texaco Country Showdown is America's largest country music talent search. Now in its 30th year, the Texaco Country Showdown is designed to
find the most promising country music talent in communities all across America, and to offer these aspiring artists a platform from which to launch
their professional music careers.
The Texaco Country Showdown begins each spring with over 450 local contests sponsored by radio stations all across the United States. Each contestant must begin by participating at the local level. Local winners will advance to their respective State competitions, where they will compete for a $1,000 prize, the State Title, and the chance to advance to one of five Regional Finals. Regional winners will compete in the National Final held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. The winner of the Country Showdown will receive the National Title and a Grand Prize of $100,000!
The Texaco Country Showdown is open to vocal and/or instrumental performers, individuals, and groups of up to seven members who have not performed on a record listed in the national record charts (Billboard, Radio and Records, or The Gavin Report) within the 18 months preceding the local competition. To ensure fairness, a uniform judging system will be used at all levels of competition.
