JASPER — The 33rd Annual WBDC Country Showdown will take place at 6:30 p.m. next Thursday at the Jasper Arts Center, adjacent to the Vincennes University Jasper Campus.
The event will be hosted by 101 Country WBDC and house band Haywire will back the contestants and entertain between performances.
The acts performing in this year’s showdown are: Sisters of Second Avenue, Fire N Ice and Blake Heeke of Jasper; Danielle Lee, Bryce Englert and The Hasbeens of Huntingburg; Charlene Urbancic of Ferdinand; Dawn Stemle of Celestine; Kylee Kaetzel of Santa Claus; Rob Barry of Bloomfield; Brittany Norris of Hymera; Kelsey Beard of Toledo, Ill.; and Amy Jo Madden of St. Francisville, Ill.
The Hasbeens won last year’s area contest.
The acts will compete for prizes and the opportunity to perform at the Indiana State Country Showdown.
State winners advance to the regional competition in the fall. The five regional winners are awarded an all-expense paid trip to the national final in Nashville, Tenn., where they compete for a $100,000 grand prize and national title.
Tickets — priced at $5 — will be available at the arts center beginning at 6 p.m. the night of the contest. There is no charge for children 10 and younger.
