"Can You Duet," which scored the highest rates series premiere ever for CMT, is scheduled to premiere in June. Judge/mentors for the show have not been announced.

Last year's winners, Caitlin & Will, signed to Sony Music Nashville's Columbia Records, and their debut single "Even Now," is set to impact radio in March. Finalists Joey + Rory signed to Vanguard/SugarHill and released their debut album, "Life of a Song," in October; and semi-finalists Kate and Kacey (the Coppolas) signed with Big Machine Records.
