MusicRow Magazine will hold its 13th Annual Country Radio Meet & Greet and CountryBreakout Awards at Nashville’s Margaritaville on Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015, beginning at 1 p.m.
The invitation-only event will welcome MusicRow subscribed members and radio executives for the unofficial kick-off to Country Radio Seminar, which attracts radio broadcasters from across the country for events Feb. 25-27.
MusicRow‘s afternoon will feature performances from yet-to-be-announced rising country stars in addition to revealing the CountryBreakout Award winners. 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.
“The value of the MusicRow Chart has never been greater,” says MusicRow Publisher/Owner Sherod Robertson. “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 award winners will be included in the February/March 2015 edition of MusicRow Magazine, set to debut at the ceremony. Copies of the print issue will continue to be available for CRS attendees throughout the Nashville Convention Center while MusicRow paid subscribers receive their copies by mail. Magazines are also available for purchase anytime at musicrow.com or the magazine’s 17th Avenue headquarters in Nashville.
