Country music stars Shania Twain and Jake Owen are set to host USA Network's new reality singing competition, 'Real Country.' More here!

Country music entertainers Shania Twain and Jake Owen have been selected as hosts of USA Network’s new reality singing competition, Real Country. The eight-episode television series will highlight the themes, traditions, and songs within the diverse country music genre.

“It’s been an incredible year for me, releasing my new album and coming back to country music,” Twain shared in a press release. “I feel it’s time for me to add my own support in finding our greatest undiscovered talent. 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.”

For each episode, the hosts will choose country music acts to perform in a showcase. The strongest performers from each showcase will then advance to the grand finale and one solo artist, duo, or group will be named as the ultimate winner.

“Country music truly seems to be the healing factor in a lot of people’s lives,” Owen added. “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.”

Country musicians interested in appearing on Real Country can apply online here or via email at From 2002 through 2007, USA Network was the home of Nashville Star. As fans can recall, country stars Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, and Chris Young are notable Nashville Star alums.
