Bug Country 99.7 & 101.1 is once again putting on the local portion of the longest running and largest talent contest in the country -- the Country Showdown. Now in its 33rd year, the event will be held at the Herkimer County Fair, Sunday, August 17th at 1:00pm. The Rollin' South Band from Syracuse, New York State's rockin' country band, will open the festivities with a set of great country music, and provide sound for the afternoon. The event is sponsored by Clinton Tractor, Route 12B, in Clinton, Pohl's Feed, 4560 Verona Street, Vernon, and Lichtman's Wine and Liquor in the North Utica Shopping Center.
The Country Showdown winner receives $500 and moves on to the state competition - which has a $1,000 top prize! Next is the Regional Competition; winners then vie for the national prize of $100,000 on CMT Television!
The competition is open to singers, instrumentalists and bands and has a $20 entry fee, which goes directly to the Country Showdown organization. Entrants will receive free admission to the Fair.
