Nashville Star 3 reveals 10 finalists.
Although the debut of Nashville Star 3 isn’t until March 1, USA Network has just revealed the finalists. At this pace, they’ll reveal the winner next week and s/he will release an album before the first episode even airs. For a show with no age limits (a press release boasts, “there is no upper age limit, opening the
competition to talented adults pursuing their dreams at any age”), the finalists are very young. The oldest is 33, and one is 18 and two are 19. Eight have their own web sites.
