The show will have eight parts and follow Shania and Jake as they pick different country acts to showcase. The winner in the grand finale will be crowned the next big act in country music.
Shania told Variety:
“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. 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.”
Jake further said:
“Country music truly seems to be the healing factor in a lot of people’s lives. I will always be grateful for music, whether I’m performing or listening, and I want to encourage up-and-coming artists to tell their stories, find their audiences and make their mark in country music with the same guidance that artists have given to me throughout my journey.”
The show is premiering in the fall, and filming begins this summer in Nashville.
