Performers selected for the show include The Band Perry (Republic Nashville), Lee Brice (Curb Records), Easton Corbin (Mercury Nashville), Jerrod Niemann (Sea Gayle/Arista), and Josh Thompson (Columbia Nashville).
Earlier in 2010, CRB expanded the New Faces voting process to include any employee of a commercial full-time country station. Previously, only CRS registrants were allowed to vote.
“Our New Faces show is always one of the highlights of Country Radio Seminar because attendees get a chance to see some of Country radio’s brightest up-and-coming stars,” says CRB President Mike Culotta. “The CRB board chose to include more of the Country radio industry in the voting process this year, which we feel gives us a better understanding of what Country radio listeners out there are really responding to in terms of the newer acts. Congratulations to all of this year’s New Faces performers. I know it’s going to be a terrific show!”
The regular registration rate for CRS 2011 is $499 and available at www.crb.org.
