The Proudly Saskatchewan Showcase is BACK!

1978 saw the debut of the Big Country Talent Show. Well, that tradition continues in this 42nd season of putting the spotlight on Saskatchewan’s rising stars. The mission is to find and expose the very best vocal talent and emerging artists of tomorrow. Stage presence, vocals, performance, it ALL plays a factor in the future success of SK homegrown stars, and happy to be giving them a stage and the chance to shine!

Up for grabs? A chance to work alongside one of the most respected Management companies and Record labels in Canada. Talking about RGK Entertainment and Open Road Recordings. They are responsible for the success of Dean Brody, Tim Hicks, Madeline Merlo, The Hunter Brothers and many more. PLUS, a feature slot on the biggest stage in Saskatchewan…the MAINSTAGE at Country Thunder Saskatchewan!

There are no run-offs again this year. All applications will go through a preliminary adjudication process to determine if an invitation will be issued to join for the Showcase event which will happen Sunday July 7th at The Tap in Regina.
