CMT's Next Superstar featured ten contestants were judged on performances both in the studio and at other locales, songwriting abilities, radio interviews and music videos.
Contestants, mainly undiscovered singer-songwriters in the country genre, would compete while living together in Nashville, TN. Celebrity guests would guide them each week. Each week, one finalists would be eliminated and viewers would have the final vote to determine who would win the title.
