On tomorrow nights episode of CMT's "Next Superstar"  Trace Adkins will guest judge the contestants.  Trace of course is very familiar with Reality TV after his respectable season on Celebrity Apprentice.  He will get to sit on the other side of the table in a way tomorrow night, where the contestants on "Next Superstar" have a special challenge.On tomorrow night's episode the 9  contestants will have to sing on the street in groups of three for tips.  The group that receives the least amount of tips will have to sing to survive in a honky tonk that night.  It will be interesting to see what Trace Adkins has to say about these aspiring singer/songwriters.

Also coming soon to network television is NBC's "The Voice".  Country music will be represented with Blake Shelton as a judge.  The previews for this show look promising with a cast of judges including Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine.  The main difference with this show compared to other singing competitions is that the contestants initially will only be judged by their voice.  Then the judges get to work individually with a contestant and coach them along.  It's nice to see country music represented and continue to become more mainstream.
