MusicRow Magazine announces the date for its 2016 Country Radio Meet & Greet and CountryBreakout Awards.
The invitation-only event will welcome MusicRow subscribed members and radio executives in downtown Nashville on Monday, Feb. 8, 2016, beginning at 1 p.m. Invitations requesting RSVPs will be sent in January.
The ceremony occurs before Country Radio Seminar which attracts radio broadcasters from across the country for events Feb. 8-11, 2016.
MusicRow‘s 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 14 years, the CountryBreakout Chart has led the market for country radio’s secondary stations. Additionally, the event will feature performances from some of country music’s most promising rising artists.
“The value of the MusicRow chart is greater than it has ever been before,” says MusicRow Publisher/Owner Sherod Robertson. “We are proud to pay homage to this important segment of our radio industry. Not only does the MusicRow 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-revealed awards winners will be included in the February/March 2016 edition of MusicRow Magazine, set to debut at the awards ceremony. Copies of the print issue will be available for attendees. 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.
