Music superstar Naomi Judd will return to the judging panel for the second season of CMT’s hit series, CAN YOU DUET, the weekly music competition series will seek to find country music’s next great duo.
Last season, Judd’s insight as a judge and mentor helped develop some of today’s brightest talents in country music, including finalists Joey + Rory, who just earned their first ACM nomination for Top Vocal Duo and released their debut album Life of a Song on Vanguard/SugarHill in October 2008. Show winners Caitlin & Will signed to Sony Music Nashville’s Columbia Records and their debut single “Even Now” just launched on radio. Also, semi-finalists Kate and Kacey (The Coppolas) recently signed with Taylor Swift’s label Big Machine Records.
Unlike other talent competition shows, each contestant on CAN YOU DUET will compete as part of a duo, sometimes working with different partners as the competition progresses. As a result, viewers will witness first-hand all the on and off-stage drama to be had in creating a dynamic musical duo. In addition to critiquing each performance and deciding who will advance to the next round, be sent home, and ultimately be crowned country music’s next great duo, Judd – along with two other judges-- will also serve as a mentor to guide, groom and develop the duets along the way.
CNA YOU DUET SEASON 2 returns to CMT at 8 PM Saturday, June 20th.
