If you think you could be the next Carrie, Hank or Dolly, register to audition with a video of you doing your thing. Wondering if you are eligible? Explore our FAQ to learn more.
We’ll pick 9 artists that played their hearts out and invite them to one of our 3 studio sessions in Toronto, Halifax, and Vancouver. All registrants chosen to audition will receive travel grants and a professionally-recorded and mixed video and audio file of their performance.
Then it's over to the fans. The videos will be posted online, on this website, for a nation-wide vote to pick the 3 finalists. All those in the running will be contacted prior to voting opening on the site and will be encouraged to spread the word to gain the most votes.
The 3 finalists will get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to hone their craft with education, mentoring, and exposure at SiriusXM events. The finalists will perform at Canada's biggest country music festivals, take part in a Mentor Session in Toronto hosted by the Canadian Country Music Association and SiriusXM, and be flown down to Nashville with SOCAN for a week-long songwriting camp after the contest ends.
All 3 finalists will open for a headliner during The CCMA’s Country Music Week, in front of industry professionals and big names in country music. Judges will then announce the winner of $25,000 and who will claim the title of SiriusXM's Top of the Country.
