CMT searches to find America's next great country star and opens the door for undiscovered singer/songwriters who think they have what it takes to make it in the rough-and-tumble world of the music industry. The show allows the world to see every triumph and every setback unfold weekly. The contestants will share a house in Nashville -- providing a rare and revealing inside look at the all-ensuing drama that can take place when musical adversaries live and compete together.
The contestants are also judged on their songwriting, radio interviews and music videos to reveal a complete package of performer, personality and writer.
Contestants will try to impress celebrity guests each week through a series of music business related challenges and grueling performance rounds. Each week, one finalist will be eliminated, and America will have the final vote to determine who will win the title of CMT's Next Superstar. (Source: CMT)
