Nashville Star: Coming to NBC!

by at . Comments
2007logo2.jpgNashville Star will be back on the air in 2008. But it won't be on the USA Network.

Instead, the country-music competition will be broadcat on NBC. The show will join a second season of American Gladiators in what NBC is calling its "All-American Summer" lineup, leading up to its coverage of the Olympics in August.

"We are thrilled to feature the powerhouse Gladiators this summer, and it's a real coup to bring Nashville Star to NBC," says Craig Plestis, head of alternative programming at NBC.

The singing competition has aired for five seasons on USA, helping launch the careers of Miranda Lambert, Buddy Jewell and last season's winner, Angela Hacker, who beat out her brother Zac to win the crown. Approximately three million people watched last season's finale, a record for the show.
