WYRK's 2018 Taste Of Country riser Kate Mallen was featured on Channel 4 Wake Up! this morning. She discussed her success since she won the contest and encourages anyone in Buffalo who is looking to get their country singing career moving to enter.

From now through November 27th, WYRK will be searching for the next Toyota Taste of Country Riser--the next generation of country music talent.

If you think you have what it takes to be the next great country star, submit your name and a video of you performing an ORIGINAL country song below. Whether you are an individual or part of a group, we want to see what you can do.

The selected finalists will compete at the Bear's Den at Seneca Niagara Casino on December 7th, 2019 where former TOC Risers will also perform! The December 7th performance at the Bear's Den at the Seneca Niagara Casino is a 21 and up event.

The winner will receive the opportunity to perform at WYRK Toyota Taste of Country and the WYRK Fall Acoustic Show. They will also receive studio time they can use as they please. Most importantly they will receive the support of the station as they pursue their musical career!

Please submit a YouTube link of you performing an original song in the form below.
