CRS 2017 Adds Director Of Amazon Music As Featured Speaker

Ryan Redington

Country Radio Seminar 2017 will welcome Director of Amazon Music, Ryan Redington, as a featured speaker. Redington will speak on Friday, Feb. 24, 2017 at 9 a.m. and will discuss the approach Amazon uses through their services and consumer relations.

Throughout his time at Amazon, Redington has overseen the launch of two Amazon Music streaming services—Amazon Music Unlimited in October 2016 and Prime Music in June 2014. Redington also spearheaded Amazon’s exclusive deal with Garth Brooks, to bring the country superstar’s music catalog to streaming for the first time. Redington began his Amazon career working on the video team, before joining music where he worked as a category leader in physical before digital and streaming.

“Ryan will be providing us a very candid, unique look inside the intellectual perspective of one of the country’s most innovative retailers, products, and consumer services,” said Bill Mayne, Executive Director of CRS. “This is an hour at CRS not to miss!”
