Shania Twain Set to Host New Singing Competition 'Real Country' with Jake Owen!

Shania Twain is teaming up with Jake Owen this summer for a brand new singing competition called Real Country!

The eight-episode series is scheduled to air later this fall on USA Network and it will spotlight the traditions, songs and themes of specific country genres.

During each hourlong installment of the series, Shania and Jake will hand-select emerging solo artists, duos and groups to perform in a showcase. The best artists from each will then perform in a grand finale for the chance to be crowned one of country music’s next breakout acts.

“It’s been an incredible year for me, releasing my new album and coming back to country music,” Shania said in a statement (via RollingStone). “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.”

Country Singer Jake Owen Describes Horrifying Scene Running From Las Vegas Gunfire

Country singer Jake Owen was watching Jason Aldean perform at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on the Las Vegas strip when the mass shooting broke out on Sunday (October 1). Jake himself had just performed just before the shooting.

The 36-year-old entertainer described what happened to NBC News.

“I was on the stage. I had just walked up on the stage with a couple friends of mine, including Luke Combs, another artist who had played earlier, and we were literally standing 50 feet from where Jason was on stage, and all of a sudden, you heard what sounded – it was kind of a think where you were like, ‘Was that gunfire?’ – and it got faster and faster, almost like it was an automatic rifle,” Jake explained. “You could hear it ringing off the rafters off the top of the stage. That’s when you saw people fleeing. At that point, people on stage just started running everywhere possible. And it was pretty chaotic, for sure.”

“So I kind of just ran like everyone else. At one point, I was crouched down behind a cop car with about 20 other people that had come to the show, and everyone’s asking if everyone’s okay. There’s blood on people, and you could see a couple folks on the street that looked like they’d been shot lying there. It was chaotic. It was literally like a movie that you feel like you’ve seen before that’s not real life,” Jake continued, describing the tragic scene. “I mean, it was chaos for a pure seven to 10 minutes.”
