Artist Registration Now Open for CRS 2011 Digital Liners
Debut of digital liners program well-received at CRS 2010, included participation from emerging acts to superstars
Following its successful debut at CRS 2010, Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.® has announced artist registration for its CRS 2011 digital liners program is now open.
The all-digital process replaced the Artist Radio Taping Sessions at CRS 2010 and provides artists with more flexibility to record liners at their leisure. Artists will receive the liner requests directly from CRB by Nov. 3, 2010, and must submit the finished product back to CRB at firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 15, 2010. Stations wishing to participate in the program must register for CRS 2011 and submit their liners to CRB for review by Oct. 31, 2010.
Artists who sign up for the program are obligated to record up to three custom liners per station, up to 150 stations. One generic liner set will also be recorded by the artists for stations registering after Oct. 31. Sixty-eight artists participated in the program’s debut at CRS 2010, from emerging acts to superstars such as Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Reba.
“Based on stellar feedback from our inaugural foray into digital liners, we are again offering a digital package to stations in place of a physical liner recording session at CRS 2011,” says CRB Board Member and Chair of the Digital Liners Task Force, John Zarling. “We found that this new approach was appealing to many artists, managers and labels, along with more than 150 radio station attendees who registered for custom liners. We are excited to again provide this opportunity, which is unique to the Country music community.”
