NBC show called "Nashville Star" holds auditions in Washington

KMPH Fox 26 - Fresno, CA, USA - There's more twang than oratory in the nation's capital today.

Thousands of country music hopefuls descended on a Washington, DC hotel to audition for the NBC TV show "Nashville Star." The winner gets a recording contract.

One woman says she could use the lucky break and the money to care for her sick 1-year-old daughter. Another hopeful said her 8-year-old daughter "deserves the world from me and I'm going to do everything to give it to her."

An Elvis impersonator was hoping to be recognized for his own talents. The man at the front of the line was blind, which he hoped would give him a marketing advantage.

Many in the crowd passed the time by singing, sometimes in groups. Two sisters from Florida painted their toe nails.

Country star Billy Ray Cyrus hosts the series, which moves from USA to NBC for its sixth season in June.
