If you are a country singer, duo or in a country band, we have a chance for you to play in front of tens of thousands at the Barefoot Country Music Fest in Wildwood August 19-22!

It's going to be a big deal with Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, the Zac Brown Band, Lee Brice and a couple dozen more country acts slated to perform.

Cat Country 107.3 is giving your band the chance to join the lineup! (We say 'band", but if it's just you with a guitar, that works, too. You just need to provide "live" musical accompaniment, no "tracks.")

Over several Sunday afternoons, we're holding a Rising Stars Competition at Renault Winery during their Country Sundays! (Yes! The public is invited! Bring your own cheering section!)

The competition will be held each Sunday from June 13 - August 8 with the best acts invited back for the finals on Sunday, August 15th. On August 15th, we'll select the winning band to play at the Barefoot Country Music Fest in Wildwood!

If you and/or your band is interested in trying out, tell us the date(s) your band is interested in trying out. (Don't forget, if selected, you also must be available for the finals on August 15th.)

Fill out the information below, and we'll get back to you if your band is selected. (For your best chance, tell us as many dates as possible that your band is available to try out.)

Tryouts will be in the neighborhood of 15 - 20 minutes per band. Back-line will be provided, but you'll have to bring your own drums if needed. (We will send you a band info - set up sheet if you're selected to tryout.)

Thanks, and good luck!
