Look away from the horribly botched Photoshop design above and read on. Screen Gems (Sony Pictures) and Country Music Television (aka CMT) have teamed up to host a Country Strong singing contest in 16 cities between December 1-5 across the US of A (Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Nashville, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa).
- Pick one of the two songs here to perform A CAPELLA at the local event during the entry period.
- Winners from each local event will receive $500 and become Finalists on CMT.com.
- Fans will be able to see each of the Finalists’ performances and vote on the one to win the grand prize.
- The Grand Prize Winner will receive a trip for two (2) to Nashville, an opportunity to meet a Sony Nashville music executive, a visit to the set of CMT‘s Top 20 Countdown show and the possibility to perform on CMT.
Please visit www.CountryStrong.CMT.com to see the location details for each city, complete contest rules, entry form and the two songs to choose from for your chance to enter.
We are not a regional website; however, we are based in Austin, TX…so behold the Austin, TX flyer below:
