LeAnn Rimes and Chrissy Metz have been working on something big! Country music stars increasingly have challenged themselves by appearing in reality TV shows. (Looking at you, Blake Shelton, who stands out as “The Voice” TV show’s country music coach king!)
Now two country music singers have teamed up to star in a totally new reality TV show. Keep reading to learn how the multi-talented Chrissy Metz and husky-voiced LeAnn Rimes will showcase a new reality TV competition!
New Reality TV Competition
First famed for her role as Kate on “This Is Us,” Chrissy Metz has recently become a rising country music star. And now Chrissy takes on yet another challenge.
Metz will join long-time country music songstress LeAnn Rimes to star in a new reality TV competition show! Ideas for new shows often overwhelm streaming services.
But the Discovery+ streaming service apparently loved the concept of LeeAnn and Chrissy’s new show! The company gave a green light to the series, titled “Meet Your Makers Showdown.”
As a result, Michael Levitt Productions took on the role of turning the concept into a series. And the production company used Twitter to share the news.
“Couldn’t be more excited to announce our latest project! Meet Your Makers Showdown streaming on Discovery+ later this year! @ChrissyMetz , @leannrimes & @MarkMontano lead our team of craft loving host & judges,” tweeted Levitt Productions.
Chrissy Metz serves as host of the six episodes, with each scheduled for an hour. Watch four different artists finish two challenges each in every episode.
The new show appears to borrow some themes from reality TV competitions such as “Top Chef” and “Project Runway.” As a result, the series will showcase projects for the artists designed to reveal their skills, creativity, and passion.
Country music star LeAnn Rimes takes on the task of “inspiration judge.” In that role, the songstress will guide the other judges on an exploration of each artist.
Each week, a guest judge will appear. And in addition to Rimes and Metz, craft specialist Mark Montano will serve as the judge focused on analyzing each artist’s technique.

Reality TV competition shows typically offer coveted prizes. The “Meet Your Makers Showdown” is no exception. Four artists in each episode compete for a grand prize of $10,000.
Are you crafty and wondering if you could compete? Categories range from stained glass to candle making to soap creations and even paper art.
The president of the HGTV channel also oversees potential content for Discovery+. She described the motivation for the series, which will stream on Discovery+ later this year.
“The ‘Meet Your Makers Showdown’ spotlights the nation’s obsession with handcrafted goods as featured in the countless viral videos and tutorials exploding on social media,” explained Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “With encouragement from creative powerhouses Chrissy Metz, LeAnn Rimes and Mark Montano, these makers will pull out all the stops to impress the judges, make boutique-worthy creations, and walk away with a $10,000 prize.”
LeAnn Rimes Shares Excitement On Twitter!
Country music legend LeAnn Rimes proved to her Twitter followers that she’s just as excited about judging the craft show as she is about her songs.
“I can’t give too much away yet but I’m so excited to share this news with you. The secret project we’ve been shooting these past few weeks is for a new show on @discoveryplus called “Meet Your Makers Showdown”. I’m having the best time on set with @ChrissyMetz & @MarkMontano!” tweeted Rimes.
