Time is a ticking. Today (7/20) at 5pm is the deadline entry for this year's Texaco Country Showdown.

The Showdown is America's largest country music talent search and your shot at stardom begins at the local level. The event will be held Friday, August 3rd at Cowboy's Nightclub in Lafayette. Our friends at Service Chevrolet, 4313 Cameron Street in Lafayette, are the proud sponsors of the Showdown once again this year!

We will pick the top 10 contestants from the demos we receive and they will compete with a live band at Cowboy's for the chance to move on to the state competition.
