NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Trace Adkins and Terri Clark will be among the guests appearing on the second season of "Nashville Star," the viewer-voted talent show.
The show's second season debuts Saturday on cable television's USA Network. Buddy Jewell, winner of last season's series, will perform his new single, "Sweet Southern Comfort," and accept a gold record for his self-titled album for Sony Music Nashville.
The nine-week show combines country music with reality television by placing contestants in a Music Row house as they compete for a recording contract with Sony. Cameras capture their daily interaction and live performances, which are judged by viewers and industry professionals.
Guests during the second season also will include Rodney Crowell, Joe Nichols and Montgomery Gentry. More guests are expected to be announced during the season.
