The 32nd Annual Texaco Country Showdown is America's largest Country music talent show and US1059 is bringing it to CU. 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 Country Showdown begins in Champaign Urbana June 20th with our local prelim followed by our finals at The Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival on June 29th! The local winner will then  advance to the Illinois State competition at The IL State Fair to compete to win 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."
