Real Country is here and the theme of the season premiere is “Drink Up and Party Down!” Our esteemed panel consists of Shania Twain, Jake Owen, and Travis Tritt, and each of them has handpicked an artist they believe represents the future of country music. Tonight’s episode pays tribute to country music’s long-held love affair with drinking songs. Says Tritt: “I tell my audiences all the time. The more you drink, the better I sound.”
