94.9 KYSS FM is partnering with Taste of Country to find country music's hottest up and coming act. We want to send one Missoula champion act into a final round hosted on Taste of Country, where fans nationwide will vote on their favorite band or artist.

The winner will be the centerpiece of a feature article on TasteofCountry.com and will be featured on Taste of Country Nights with Sam Alex, the nationally syndicated radio show broadcast from the heart of Nashville across the United States.

Here's how it's all going to work. We need you to submit one original song, along with an approved press photo, and a signed copy of our performance release. You will have until December 31 to submit these items. We'll conduct an internal panel selection from the submissions we receive and announce a winner on January 1, 2018, who will move on to the final round on Taste of Country!

Western Montana is blessed to be an area so rich with talent, so we know you're out there. Show us what you can do! Remember, the deadline to enter is December 31. Have questions? Contact us here, and we'll do our best to help you out.
