posted by Greg Lane -

Shania Twain and Jake Owen will be searching for rising country talent on a new TV singing competition this fall. Called Real Country, the eight-part series will film in Nashville and air on the USA network ,according to the websites  "The Boot and "Rolling Stone"

On Real Country, Twain and Owen will select up-and-coming solo artists, duos and groups to perform in various showcases, spotlighting different parts of the country genre. The best acts from each episode will return for a grand finale episode.

"It’s been an incredible year for me, releasing my new album and coming back to country music. I feel it’s time for me to add my own support in finding our greatest undiscovered talent," says Twain, who will also be executive producing the series, in a press release. "It’s beyond thrilling to be leading the charge with Real Country, and I’m on a mission to find artists who will keep country music diverse and dynamic -- the kind of diversity that inspired all of us.”

Artists interested in performing on Real Country can apply online or via email at RealCountry@castingduo.com

Twain, who courted controversy with her recent statement – and subsequent apology – seemingly in support of President Trump, released Now, her first album in 15 years in September. Her summer-long headlining tour kicks off Thursday, May 3rd, in Tacoma, Washington.

Owen will be on the road this spring and summer with his Life's Whatcha Make It Tour, featuring Chris Janson and Jordan Davis.

Twain and Owen are just the latest country singers to judge prospective talent on TV. Luke Bryan joined this year's reboot of American Idol on ABC, and Blake Shelton has been a perennial coach on NBC's The Voice.
