Only One Woman Remains In the Race to Be the Next Nashville Star

NASHVILLE, TENN. - April 13, 2006 - NASHVILLE STAR, the nation's top-rated country music series, has tapped multi-platinum superstar Trace Adkins to open episode six with a live performance of his smash hit "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" and Grammy-Award winning R&B Vocalist Patti Labelle to serve as guest judge, it was announced today by Libby Hansen, USA Network's vice president of alternative series & specials. Episode six will broadcast live on Tuesday, April 18 at 10:00 PM ET on USA Network.

"Trace Adkins is on fire right now," explains Hansen. "This single spent weeks at the top of both the country and dance club charts, he's been nominated for countless awards and he is selling out arena dates across the country. His high-octane live performance is the perfect way to open the next episode of Nashville Star!"

The legendary Patti Labelle will join show veterans Anastasia Brown and Phi Vassar at the judges table. With only four contestants remaining, each will compete for America's votes before someone is eliminated at the end of the show.

"So much of country music's heritage comes from Rhythm and Blues," explains executive producer Jeff Boggs. "Patti Labelle's music has influenced so many of today's young artists, and her advice for our contestants will be invaluable."

With only one female remaining, Nicole Jamrose (Schererville, IN), will take on Jared Ashley (Hobbs, NM), Chris Young (Murphreesboro, TN), Matt Mason (Fairland, IN) and Casey Rivers (Lindale, TX) in a battle to the end. The winner of Nashville Star will receive a recording contract from the RCA Label Group, as well as an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry and a Chevy Silverado.
