If you think you won’t have to or can’t sing country music for pop/rock musical auditions, think again! Country musicals run the gamut from “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” to “Hee-Haw” to “The Great American Trailer Park Musical” to “Bridges of Madison County” to “Hands on a Hard Body” to “Bright Star” to “The Spitfire Grill” to “Floyd Collins,” and so many more! 

If you’re prepping to audition for a musical like this, let master audition coach Sheri Sanders guide you through the world of country and bluegrass, and the musicals these songs are right for.

Sheri Sanders is the founder of Rock the Audition and master teacher who is bridging the gap between popular music and musical theater.
