Nashville Star 4 auditions start next weekend

USA Network’s hit talent search, Nashville Star, will return for a fourth season next year. In a press release, a USA VP said the show “works because it showcases the best untapped musical talent on television. One thing we’ve learned over the past three seasons is that there’s an incredible pool of talented performers whose voices have yet to be heard.”

The show will audition potential contestants in 17 cities starting next weekend, and mail-in applications are also acceptable. Regional finals will be held in Houston and Nashville next January.

As usual, anyone over 18 is eligible to compete.
