CRS 2010 features several updates to the conventional Country Radio Seminar agenda activities.
A new digital liners system replaces the on-site A.R.T.S. event this year. In addition to previously announced superstar participants such as Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Brooks & Dunn, the most recent additions to the lineup include: Trace Adkins, Katie Armiger, Lee Brice, Luke Bryan, Sarah Buxton, Eric Church, Bucky Covington, Emerson Drive, Jessica Harp, Randy Houser, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Love & Theft, Martina McBride, Montgomery Gentry, James Otto, Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Reba, John Rich, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Phil Vassar and Emily West.
The inaugural CRB-Country Aircheck Awards will be presented at the New Faces of Country Music® Show and Dinner. A total of 28 awards, presented between performances, will recognize those individuals that have demonstrated outstanding efforts in the Country radio and music industries in the past year.
Another first for this year’s CRS is the move of UMG’s Wednesday luncheon to the Ryman Auditorium. The newly expanded lineup of UMG artists that will perform includes: Gary Allan, Easton Corbin, Billy Currington, Vince Gill, Mallary Hope, Julianne Hough, Jamey Johnson, David Nail, Randy Rogers Band, Sugarland, Josh Turner and Lee Ann Womack.
The overall scheduling of events at CRS 2010 has been revised so that no more than three panels are held simultaneously during the seminar. Additionally, the elimination of market-specific topics from the agenda ensures that panels are relevant to all attendees, regardless of market size. Two events making a return to CRS after several years’ hiatus include the Artist/Attendee Welcome Reception and the Consumer Focus Group panel.
Notable speakers and performers at this year’s CRS include Taylor Swift at the ACM-sponsored Music City Jam™, keynote speaker and financial authority Dave Ramsey and best-selling author and Workplace 911 panelist Bob Rosner. Performers at the New Faces of Country Music show will be announced soon.
Other agenda highlights include the updated CMA Prime Prospects research presentation and subsequent evaluation and discussion panel, songwriter showcases KCRS and WCRS Live!, the label-sponsored luncheons, the Operation Troop Aid package assembly line, and the unique Hot Topic panel, which addresses the most current issues facing the Country radio and music industry today.
A detailed schedule and descriptions of CRS 2010’s panels and confirmed panelists can be viewed at the Country Radio Broadcasters website: www.CRB.org. CRB, Inc. reserves the right to modify or change the agenda as speakers and panelists are added or removed.
