This year’s Country Radio Seminar will again launch with the CMA Welcome Reception, set for Wednesday, Feb. 19 at Omni Hotel Nashville. The reception will feature performances from recipients of the second annual CMA KixStart Artist Scholarship, including EMI Records Nashville’s Kylie Morgan, Broken Bow Records’ Everette, and independent artist Angie K.

Morgan is a member of CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2020, and is currently signed to SMACKSongs as a writer. She has toured with artists including Dan + Shay and is prepping her current project. Duo Everette—which includes Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia—co-produced and wrote nearly every song on their debut project Slow Roll. Angie K has independently released two projects, toured with Jake Owen and Tanya Tucker, earned a song on Apple Music’s “Hot Tracks” playlist, as well as a track that served as the soundtrack for the Magic Kingdom’s Happily Ever After nightly fireworks show at Walt Disney World.

In October 2019, Everette, Kylie Morgan and Angie K began their work as part of the year-long CMA KixStart Artist Scholarship program (named after Brooks & Dunn’s Kix Brooks). The program connects the selected artists with various members of the music industry and offers them opportunities to participate in CMA events, including the CMA Awards, CMA Fest, CMA Foundation programs and more.

2020 marks the fifth year CRS has partnered with CMA for the event, as well as the 10th consecutive year the Welcome Reception has been part of the CRS agenda.

This year’s Country Radio Seminar runs from Feb. 19-21, 2020 at Omni Hotel Nashville.
