KQAQ 970 AM Classic Country Legends proudly presents
The 32nd Annual Texaco Country Showdown is America's largest Country music talent show. It's designed to find the most promising country music talent in the nation and to give these performers a chance to launch their professional music careers.
The Showdown begins with local talent contests sponsored by country music radio stations like ours. Winners advance to State competitions to compete for a $1,000 prize, the State Title and the opportunity to advance to one of five Regional Finals. It’s 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."
