They took part in a bootcamp, studied hard, and gained an insiders edge. Now, the top 12 artists selected for Project WILD are ready to strut their stuff.

Project WILD: Country Showcase Series kicks off September 28, 2017 with four concerts, each featuring three acts. The artists will be vying for both the hearts of the audience as well as the judges and the public can even vote for their favourite act. The final three will be announced in November at a finale concert where the grand prize winner will receive a grand prize of $100,953.
