Do We Need Another Music Competition Show?
(Cue the movie trailer guy) In a world where you already have a lot of music competition shows comes yet another show focused on those aspiring to be country stars.
This fall, it's 'Real Country'. It will feature Shania Twain and Jake Owen and will film this summer in Nashville. The show is supposed to run for 8 weeks on USA network produced by Wilshire Studio with Twain, Nicolle Yaron, Stijn Bakkers, and Leslie Garvin set to executive produce.
Heather Olander says that "the show celebrates everything we love about country music." She is the Senior VP, Alternative Development, and Production, USA Network.
And apparently, for sponsors, there will be a unique way for advertisers to connect with the genre's passionate fan base.
In the broadcasting cable report, in each hour-long episode, Twain and Owen hand-select emerging solo artists, duos, and groups to perform in showcases that spotlight the rich traditions, songs and themes of specific country genres. The best artists from each showcase will perform in a grand finale, for the chance to be named one of country music’s next breakout acts.
What do you think. Do you and America want another music competition show?
