Country music star Travis Tritt is preparing to join Shania Twain and Jake Owen as a judge on USA Network’s 'Real Country.' More here!

Country music artist Travis Tritt will serve as a judge alongside Shania Twain and Jake Owen on the upcoming USA Network’s Real Country reality singing competition. The eight-episode television series will highlight the themes, traditions, and songs within the diverse country music genre.

“I’ve been influenced by so many amazing country artists in my career, and the key to longevity is using those influences as inspiration to become something unique,” Tritt shares in a statement. “I’ve never been shy about how I feel about country music, so I can’t wait to join ‘Real Country’ to share my experiences and thoughts. Like I always say… if you don’t want my opinion, don’t ask me a question.”

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 musicians interested in appearing on Real Country can apply online here or via email at The deadline is June 18th. 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.

Shania, Jake, AND Travis— this spells the good kind of T-R-O-U-B-L-E!

T-R-O-U-B-L-E Lyrics

Well I play an old guitar from nine till half past one
I’m just tryin’ to make a livin’ watching everybody else havin’ fun
Well I don’t miss much if it happens on a dancehall floor
Mercy look what just walked through that door
Well hello T-R-O-U-B-L-E
Tell me what in the world
You doin’ A-L-O-N-E
Yeah say hey good L double O-K-I-N-G
Well I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E
I was a little bitty baby when my papa hit the skids
Mama had a time tryin’ to raise nine kids
She told me not to stare cause it was impolite
She did the best she could to try to raise me right
Cause mama never told me ’bout nothin’ like why-O-you
Bet your mama musta been another good lookin’ honey too
Hey good L double O-K-I-N-G
Well I smell T-are-O-you-be -L-E
Well a sweet talkin’, sexy walkin’, honky tonkin’ baby
The men are gonna love ya and the woman gonna hate ya
Remindin’ them of everything they’re never gonna be
May be the beginning of a world war three
Cause the world ain’t ready for nothing like why-O-you
I bet your mama musta been another good lookin’ mama too
Hey say hey good L double O-K-I-N-G
Well I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E
I said hey
I said hey
I said hey
I said hey
I said hey
I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E

Look for the program to debut this fall and share this update with other country music fans!
