Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) has announced the nominees for this year’s New Faces of Country Music Show, which will take place at Country Radio Seminar (CRS) 2024 (Feb. 28 – March 1).
The artists nominated for consideration are George Birge (Records Nashville), Chayce Beckham (BMG Nashville), Dillon Carmichael (Riser House), Corey Kent (Sony Music Nashville/RCA), Megan Moroney (Sony Music Nashville/Columbia), Conner Smith (The Valory Music Co.) and Warren Zeiders (Warner Music Nashville).
Co-partnered by the Academy of Country Music and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the New Faces of Country Music Show has been a hallmark event at CRS for over five decades. It showcases five emerging artists who have achieved significant success at country radio during the qualification period. For 2024, the qualification period spans from Nov. 1, 2022, to Oct. 31, 2023.
“Even as other formats become more transient, the country community’s commitment to developing artists for the long term remains. All these artists are prime examples, and the five who will be voted in as New Faces join a storied lineage to that effect,” shares Chuck Aly, CRS New Faces Committee Chairman.
Voting for the Class of 2024 will be open from Monday, Nov. 27, to Friday, Dec. 1, at countryradioseminar.com. The final lineup for the New Faces Show will be determined based on the five acts with the most votes.
Eligible voters must be full-time employees primarily involved in the programming, promotion and distribution of country music. This includes professionals from broadcast radio, satellite radio, television outlets and digital service providers while excluding those with vested interests in individual artists or musical works, such as labels, managers, agents and publishers.
