Are you an up-and-coming country music singer looking for your big break? Do you want to perform on the same stage on the same night as Easton Corbin, Sara Evans and Rascal Flatts? Here’s your chance!
The Capital Hoedown music festival in Ottawa, Canada is giving independent artists and bands the chance to win the gig of a lifetime. Starting today, Canadian country bands can enter their original country music at CapitalHoedown.net for the chance to perform live on August 13th, 2011 at the LeBreton Flats stage in Ottawa.
Country music fans from coast-to-coast will be voting on their favorite band online to find the next big undiscovered act in Canada. Artists and bands are welcome to use Facebook and Twitter to bring in the votes, and any other social media as online voting begins today as well as submissions. Fan votes will be used to pick the top 40 acts, which will then move on to the semi-finals.
The top three acts will then perform at the Hoedown Showdown Finale live at the Lone Star Texas Restaurant in Ottawa on July 28th, 2011 in front of a judging panel. The panel will select the winner based on creativity, originality, presentation, vocal ability, entertainment value and melody/lyrics.
The winning act will perform with Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, and Easton Corbin. The Capital Hoedown also has Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Kenny Chesney headlining the other two nights of the festival.
Register your band today at CapitalHoedown.net and register as a Showdown Artist. Good luck!
