Today we are hosting the auditions for a national country music singing competition. Contestants of all ages will be performing all day in both Globe 1 and Globe 2 with top quality backing bands Pure Dixie (Globe 1) and Handpicked (Globe 2).
Entrants compete in sections organised by age group including junior, intermediate, senior and veteran. These sections are country solo, country rock and country gospel.
In addition to these categories, we also have the following OPEN sections (for all ages)- Western, NZ Song, Duo/Group and Songwriter.
A group of judges in each venue will decide which two entrants from each section will represent their country music club in the finals concert tomorrow.
Aside from cash prizes and trophies for our winners, contestants are all vying for the prestigious title of Overall Winner, which will gain them entry into the supreme national country music competition 2020 Entertainer of the Year.
