There will also be a surprise appearance by country music legend George Jones. At the end of the show, the winner will perform their debut sing, which was produced by John Rich. The single will be released to country radio the very next morning, and the winner will give a live performance from the Olympics in Beijing on August 12. John Rich will also produce the debut album of the winner.
