Auditions in the North Island were huge!!!

Producer Libby Hakaraia said the numbers of people turning up for the auditions has been testament to Country Music being very popular.
“I don’t want to jinx things but we have been swamped with inquiries from people wanting to be a part of this show. It’s very very exciting!”

“Country music is not just traditional country & western but is crossing all sorts of genres and is getting bigger and bigger - look at Taylor Swift. But there’s also country blues, country reggae and country soul and judging by the performances at the auditions there’s some amazing talent about to hit our television screens!” said Saelyn.
