Wildhorse Announces Fifth Annual Battle for the Saddle Competition

indexNashville’s Wildhorse Saloon will host its fifth annual Battle for the Saddle band competition with the new formatting and enhanced prizes, held between April and May.

Ten contestants will advance past the April 30 auditions to gradually be eliminated during four rounds of competition (May 15, 16, 20 and 21), with the final two advancing to the finals on May 29.

Premiere Networks’ syndicated morning show duo Big D & Bubba will be brought in for the competition. Battle for the Saddle will offer prizes including a day in the studio with Michael Knox (Jason Aldean), an industry showcase, a photo shoot and an annual contract with the Wildhorse Saloon including a headlining at the venue during CMA Music Festival in June.

“This series is already unique in the way it focuses on bands as a whole and not just the singer or individual band member, but we’re mixing it up this season by introducing band challenges that will give the challenge winner a leading edge in the next round,” said Ron Kerere, general manager of the Wildhorse Saloon.

Applications will be considered through April 19 at www.WildhorseSaloon.com.
