If life is a highway, love is a rollercoaster. In this episode of Real Country, three talented acts take the stage at the Real Country Bar in Nashville to sing songs that delve into love’s infinite nooks and crannies. “I think all country music should be a letter It should be direct,” says tonight’s guest judge Hunter Hayes. “It should be a personal experience to another human being who has had that experience.” Regular judges Shania Twain, Travis Tritt, and Jake Owen are in the house as usual to share their commentary. The audience is here to enjoy the music and vote.
