LeAnn Rimes will host the third season of “Nashville Star,” USA’s talent search skein for country music. Rimes succeeds “Access Hollywood’s” Nancy O’Dell.
Open casting calls for “Nashville Star” began Oct. 25 in Long Beach. Wannabes across the country perform a one-minute song in hopes of moving on to callbacks, regional auditions and the final selection of the Nashville Star, broadcast live from the BellSouth Acuff Theater in Nashville.
Rimes, 21, performed as a special guest on the skein’s second season finale.
