(Nashville, Tenn. – Feb. 7, 2011)  Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.® has announced the opening of the Connections Bar® and networking venue for CRS registrants at CRS 2011, to be held March 2-4, 2011.

The Connections Bar is open to Country Radio Seminar attendees with valid CRS 2011 registration badges only.  Located in the downtown Nashville Renaissance Hotel near the pedway leading to the Convention Center, the venue provides a place for seminar attendees to relax and network with other professionals in the Country radio industry.

“The debut of Connections is a dream come true as an alternative, exclusive location for our attendees to meet, network, relax and be with friends, all in the convenience of the Renaissance hotel,” says CRB Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “This is the culmination of a lot of work and vision over the past year, and the early reaction to this move has been very positive.”

Co-sponsored by GAC and Citadel Media, the Connections Bar remains open from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. each day during CRS 2011.  Designed by Nashville-based party planner Randi Lesnick of Randi Events, Connections features a full-service, top-end bar, special food menu, music and video.  A ribbon cutting ceremony officially opens the venue at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2.

“I can’t tell you how excited Citadel Media is to be a co-sponsor of the new Connections lounge at CRS this year,” says Citadel Media VP Programming and Distribution, Bryan Switzer.  “Having been a part of many of the changes to CRS through the years, I applaud the CRB for continuing to create new and diverse ways for participants to interact and conduct business, as well as an opportunity to reconnect with old friends.  I’ve no doubt Connections is going to be a huge success, and we’re proud to be part of its introduction at CRS 2011!”
