Knott’s Berry Farm will be hosting the California State Final of the 32nd Annual Texaco Country Showdown. The Texaco Country Showdown is America’s largest country music talent search. The State Final will take place on Saturday, August 17 at 7 P.M. in the Wagon Camp at the park.
Suzanne Harper will be representing KHTS AM-1220 from Santa Clarita. She recently competed at the local finals of competition at Concerts in the Park.
Last year’s winner, Poor Man’s Poison, from Santa Clarita advanced to the National Final in Nashville Tenn. At the historic Ryman Auditorium, the band took home $100,000 and the title “Best New Act in Country Music.” Starting in Santa Clarita before their rise to fame, they played back on one of their first stages at Concerts in the Park this summer.
