The series is an American Idol-like competition for country singers, and Wynonna says she wants the contestants to be prepared as much as possible for their career by the time the season is over.
Although the singers must write their own songs, Wynonna says her advice is less about songwriting and more along the lines of Get a good lawyer.
As she puts it, I tell em, Never let [record company execs] tell you who you are and to hold on to their authenticity.
The new season begins March 14 on the USA network and at least one person is taking Wynonnas advice to heart: Her co-host, black country hick-hop singer Cowboy Troy, who says he knows where shes coming from because, in his words, I was branded a sell-out before I even sold a ticket.
