An experienced songwriter and performer, Belmont alumna Jamie Floyd is now getting the opportunity to showcase her talents on national television. USA Network’s new show “Real Country” is set to premier later this month, and Floyd will perform as a contestant selected by award-winning country artist Jake Owen who serves as a panelist on the show.
“Real Country” is a talent-based show featuring artists who focus on and perform real country music. Both solo and group performers will be featured and will compete for the opportunity to be named one of the next breakout acts of country music. Joining Owen as panelists will be Grammy Award-winning artists Shania Twain and Travis Tritt.
Speaking about her opportunity to be on the show, Floyd said “I got to sing songs by writers and artists I respect, and I even got to sing my own songs. I had the time of my life and am opening my heart to whatever this all leads to.”
Floyd is a graduate of Belmont’s Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business and has been working as a singer-songwriter in Nashville for several years. She has released an EP as well as written many songs recorded by artists like Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler and Brian McKnight. Her songs have also been featured on several televisions shows and movies, like ABC’s hit drama “Nashville.”
The “Real Country” series premiere will air on November 13 at 9 p.m. central on USA Network.
