MusicRow Magazine announces the date for its 2015 CRS Meet & Greet and CountryBreakout Awards.
The invitation-only event will welcome MusicRow subscribed members and radio executives to Margaritaville in downtown Nashville on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
The ceremony serves as the unofficial kick-off to Country Radio Seminar, which will attract radio broadcasters from across the country for events Feb. 25-27, 2015.
The afternoon will include the presentation of the MusicRow CountryBreakout Awards. Given annually, these honors recognize artists who earned the most airplay on the MusicRow CountryBreakout Chart during the preceding year. For 13 years, the CountryBreakout Chart has led the market for Country radio’s secondary stations. Additionally, the event will feature performances from some of Country’s music’s most promising rising artists.
“The value of the MusicRow Chart has never been greater,” says MusicRow Publisher/Owner Sherod Robertson. “From Florida Georgia Line to Clare Dunn, secondary radio is often the first place where new music is discovered and we are proud to pay homage to this important segment of our radio industry. Not only does the CountryBreakout Chart give insight to radio’s future trends, but it provides a fluid platform for established artists to expand success and allows new artists to begin their careers and create initial momentum. ”
In-depth profiles of the yet-to-be-announced awards winners will be included in the February/March 2015 edition of MusicRow Magazine, set to debut at the awards ceremony. Copies of the print issue will be available for CRS attendees throughout the Nashville Convention Center, including at kiosks in the coffee lounge and conference areas. MusicRow paid subscribers will receive copies by mail. Magazines are also available for purchase anytime at musicrow.com or the magazine’s 17th Avenue headquarters in Nashville.
