John Rich To Judge ‘Nashville Star’
Country music mogul John Rich is continuing his stint as a television personality. Fresh off his hit CMT series 'Gone Country,' the mustached half of Big & Rich has been tapped to serve as both judge and mentor on the next season of 'Nashville Star.'
The talent competition will begin its sixth season on June 9 with a different spin. It is moving from the USA Network to NBC and will now open up to duos and trios, instead of just solo artists.
Billy Ray Cyrus will host the show and will join Rich in mentoring the contestants. The winner will receive a recording contract with Warner Brothers, also home to Big & Rich.
