“Nashville Star,” USA Network’s highly successful national country music talent search,
begins its second season in Nashville with an appearance by first “Nashville Star” winner
Buddy Jewell, at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. First day of auditions begin
at The Hall on October 22.
In its first season, “Nashville Star,” hosted by Nancy O’Dell, featured live performances
by 12 finalists. They were judged by industry professionals and the television viewing
audience, as they competed for a recording contract with Sony Music Nashville.
“Nashville Star” launched the career of Columbia Records’ Buddy Jewell,
who is nominated for the Horizon Award at this year’s Country Music
Association Awards. His self-titled debut CD entered the
Billboard Country Albums chart at #1, while his debut single, “Help
Pour Out the Rain (Lacey’s Song),” is currently at #4 on the Billboard
