USA NETWORK LANDS WYNONNA JUDD AND COWBOY TROY AS CO-HOSTS FOR NASHVILLE STAR'S SEASON FOUR

** Rotating Celebrity Guests to Join Show Veterans Anastasia Brown and Phil Vassar at the Judges' Table **

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- December 6, 2005 -- Five-time Grammy Award Winning Superstar Wynonna Judd (Curb Records) and RAYBAW/Warner Bros. Record's Cowboy Troy will host the fourth season of USA Network's Nashville Star, it was announced today by Jeff Wachtel, USA's Executive Vice President of Original Programming. The nation's top-rated country music series and original grassroots talent search to find America's next great country music star, Nashville Star, will debut the fourth season in an all-new star-studded fashion on Tuesday, March 7, 2006 from 10:00 -- 11:00 PM (ET/PT).

"We're thrilled to have an artist of Wynonna's stature, talent and pure-star quality, join this season's Nashville Star. She's a legitimate icon in both the country world and our popular culture," said Wachtel. "By pairing Wynonna with someone as artistically groundbreaking as the MusikMafia's Cowboy Troy, we're truly taking the franchise to the next level."

"Individually, both Cowboy Troy and Wynonna have incredible music careers going for them," explains executive producer H.T. Owens. "But by combining their star-power, Nashville Star will continue to grow as the most entertaining and highest rated country music series in America."

One of the music industry's premiere female vocalists, Wynonna has accumulated sales totals in excess of twenty-nine million units as a solo superstar and as a member of one of the most successful duos of all time, The Judds. She has collected over 60 prestigious industry awards, celebrated 20 #1 hits and is most recently a New York Times best-selling author with her memoir, Coming Home to Myself. For the last two years, she was chosen to be the United States Ambassador for YouthAIDS, a global initiative that generates funding and awareness to help fight the spread of HIV/AIDS among the world's youth, and helps to raise millions of dollars for charities each year. With 20 legendary years and millions of fans around the world, Wynonna's star shines brightly.

The Hick-Hop originator, Cowboy Troy's release Loco Motive debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and at #15 on Billboard's Hot 200 chart. He recently performed on The Tonight Show, Imus In The Morning and Good Morning America. He has been featured in the pages of Time Magazine, Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly to name a few. CBT performed on the season finale of last year's show and was on hand to present the winner Erika Jo with a Chevy truck. He is currently touring as part of the "American Revolution Tour featuring Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich."

Returning from last year, famed singer/songwriter Phil Vassar and music and movie industry executive Anastasia Brown are slated to provide their feedback and commentary during each of the live episodes. They will be joined by a rotating special celebrity guest judge each week throughout the season.

"We want to bring a fresh perspective to each episode through the judging table," said Owens.

"Expect to see big names in entertainment filling our panel this season, and more importantly, helping find and bring untapped country music talent, that otherwise wouldn't be heard, to the American people.
