Jake Owen and Shania Twain Team Up to Discover New Talent on Upcoming TV Series, “Real Country”

Shania Twain and Jake Owen will join forces in an effort to discover new country talent for the upcoming television series, Real Country.

Premiering this fall on USA, the eight-part series will be filmed in Nashville this summer. During each hour-long episode, Shania and Jake will hand-select emerging solo artists, duos and groups to perform in a country music showcase. The best artists from each showcase will perform at the grand finale.

“I feel it’s time for me to add my own support in finding our greatest undiscovered talent,” said Shania. “It’s beyond thrilling to be leading the charge with Real Country, and I’m on a mission to find artists who will keep country music diverse and dynamic. The kind of diversity that inspired all of us.”

“Country music truly seems to be the healing factor in a lot of people’s lives,” says Jake. “I will always be grateful for music, whether I’m performing or listening, and I want to encourage up-and-coming artists to tell their stories, find their audiences and make their mark in country music with the same guidance that artists have given to me throughout my journey.”

There’s no real word on what the finale winner will receive, although a press release states that the champ will have the “chance to be named one of country music’s next breakout acts.” Interested artists can apply for the show now.
