On behalf of 106.3 The Bear, welcome to the 32nd Annual Texaco Country Showdown,
America’s largest country music talent search and radio promotion.
The Texaco Country Showdown is designed to find the most promising country music talent in America
and give these aspiring artists a chance to launch their professional careers. Thousands of performers
compete as solo acts, duos and groups. Over five hundred radio stations nationwide hold a local
Texaco Country Showdown like this, providing a platform for hometown talent for over thirty years.
The winners of our showdown will advance to the state contest to be held at the 2013 Montana State Fair
in Great Falls to compete for the Montana state title, one thousand dollars in prize money and the opportunity
to advance to one of five regional level competitions this fall. Regional winners will receive an expense-paid
trip to the 32nd nationally televised final where the grand prize of one hundred thousand dollars and the
coveted National Title are at stake.
Country music stars like Garth Brooks, Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Leann Rimes, and Toby Keith have
all at one time competed in a local Texaco Country Showdown just like this one.
