Voting is now open to all country radio station employees for the CRS 2012 New Faces of Country Music Show, which will be held on Friday, Feb. 24, 2012, at the Nashville Convention Center.
Any employee of a commercial, full-time Country formatted radio station is allowed to vote for the 2012 New Faces of Country Music Show performers. This year’s nominees are: Craig Campbell, Edens Edge, Hunter Hayes, David Nail, Sunny Sweeney, Thompson Square, James Wesley and Eli Young Band. Voting for the five finalists will remain open at CountryRadioSeminar.com through Wednesday, Nov. 23. The top five emerging artists will be selected to perform at the showcase event.
“The New Faces show at Country Radio Seminar has always been about giving new artists the opportunity to show us who they are and giving programmers a sense of what the future holds,” says New Faces Committee Chair John Crenshaw. “We at CRS believe in involving all of radio in deciding in who should have this opportunity. This is where stars can emerge in a matter of 20 minutes, in large part because of the participation of Country radio.”
