Sponsors for this year’s competition are Brookshire’s Food & Pharmacy and The Tint Shop in Weatherford.

Acts will compete for prizes and the opportunity to perform at the Texas State Texaco Country Showdown. State winners vie for a $1,000 cash prize and will advance to a regional competition in the fall. The five regional winners are awarded an all-expense paid trip to the national final where they will compete for the $100,000 grand prize and the national title. The Texaco Country Showdown gives aspiring country music artists in America a chance to launch their professional careers. Audiences may be seeing, hearing and applauding the next country music star.

Open to vocal and/or instrumental performers, the Texaco Country Showdown welcomes individual acts or groups with up to seven members to compete. Acts also must not have performed on a record charted in the top 100 country format of Billboard within eighteen months preceding the local competition. To ensure fairness, a uniform judging system is used on all levels of competition.
