Nashville Star Tonight

Nashville Star

I walked out of my office today to see a Nashville Star tour bus parked in front of the Wildhorse Saloon. According to the side of the bus, the new season starts tonight. I hadn’t heard about a new season until I saw the bus.

Now I am not a big fan of country music, but I do think the caliber of artist on Nashville Star far surpasses what is seen on American Idol. I enjoy watching the first couple shows in an American Idol season to see people make a fool of themselves. Nashville Star on the other hand seems to be more serious. I would imagine there are not the same youth requirements for Nashville Star that there are for Idol.

I won’t be watching Nashville Star tonight though. We are getting together to watch The Soprano’s episode that we missed on Sunday night ;)

    I agree. The quality of the talent for Nashville Star is, on average, MUCH better than Idol. I think Idol is mostly image-driven. That can be said of nearly all corporate-owned music these days but compared to Nashville Star I think that Idol is much more interested in targeting the youth demographic than in actually finding the most talented.

    For example, someone of Buddy Jewel’s (1st Nashville Star winner) would NEVER win on Idol I’m certain.

    I think Nashville should be all about talent, not youth, if we just went with youth there in time would be no good music. I like this years Nashville Star, even though I thought last year to be a rip off, the girl had some talent but let’s face it, she got it because she was a woman. I hope the best talent gets it this year!
