On Friday, Feb. 26, 2010 the popular New Faces of Country Music® show and dinner will officially close CRS 41. Set to perform are Gloriana (Emblem Records), Randy Houser (Universal South), Love and Theft (Lyric Street), Justin Moore (Valory Music Co.), and Chris Young (RCA).
Country Radio Seminar runs Feb. 24-26, 2010 at the Nashville Convention Center. The New Faces of Country Music Show (co-sponsored by the Country Music Association) is one of the most anticipated events of the annual Country Radio Seminar. Five emerging artists that have achieved significant success at Country radio during the qualification period are selected to perform at the event, held in the CMA Performance Hall. Each act plays a 20-minute set during the show, which officially closes CRS every year.
“The CRS New Faces show is a great way to stay ahead of the curve and see tomorrow’s stars today,” says CRB President Becky Brenner. “Artists like Taylor Swift, Sugarland, Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban were all New Faces performers at one time, and that’s only in the last decade!”
Country radio registrants who attended the previous year’s Country Radio Seminar select the New Faces of Country Music Show artists. The Nashville-based firm of Flood, Bumstead, McCready & McCarthy, Inc. validates the voting process.
The opportunity to register for Country Radio Seminar 2010 at the $549 Advance Rate expires this Friday, Dec. 18, 2009.
