This year’s ... Bucky Covington.
Assessment: Country is a genre that prizes authenticity, and nobody fakes authenticity better than this forced-together group of relative strangers who started singing country because they were assigned it. They will get eliminated right away, they will get a recording contract before they get to their cars, and their debut single will have the word “country” in its title at least twice. (“Country Is As Country Does,” say. Or “Don’t Country Your Country Before It Countrys.”)
