 Performance applications now being accepted for third annual CRS wrap-up show, to be held at Nashville’s Cadillac Ranch on Friday, March 4

(Nashville, Tenn. – Jan. 31, 2011)  Digital Rodeo is once again staging its annual Country Radio Seminar wrap-up event with this year’s themed “British Invasion” show, to be held Friday, March 4, at downtown Nashville venue Cadillac Ranch.

For the third year in a row, social network and Country lifestyle site DigitalRodeo.com is partnering with Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. to sponsor one of the most unique performance events at CRS.  The seminar-closing show typically features nearly two-dozen Country artists performing material from a non-Country genre or musical theme.  This year, participants are covering songs from the “British Invasion” era of the 1960s, although songs from more contemporary U.K.-based artists will also be considered for inclusion.

Digital Rodeo’s “British Invasion” show is open to credentialed CRS attendees only and kicks off at 10:30 p.m. CST or immediately following the CRS New Faces of Country Music® Show and Dinner at the Nashville Convention Center.  Performers in previous years have included: Laura Bell Bundy, Julianne Hough, Miranda Lambert, Jamie O’Neal, James Otto, Julie Roberts, Blake Shelton, Jimmy Wayne, Emily West, Chris Young and many more.

“Digital Rodeo has worked hard to put on a show that is creative in its concept and its appeal to the artists,” says Digital Rodeo Director of Marketing and Promotions, John Pyne.  “We dedicate a substantial amount of time and resources each year to produce this show so that these acts can make a memorable impression and benefit from such a unique opportunity at CRS.  We understand that Nashville is a town of relationships, and Digital Rodeo is committed to helping promote the music and artists and remain a trusted partner in this business.  This is going to be an exciting event!”

Adds Sharon Allen, CRB Director of Sponsorship Sales, “We are excited to have Digital Rodeo partner with us again this year for another fabulous event.  The past two years have provided some truly memorable moments, from Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert singing ‘If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)’ to Laura Bell Bundy performing an electrifying version of Tina Turner’s ‘Proud Mary,’ complete with costumed dancers.  The British Invasion theme should really push this year’s performers to come up with some interesting choices.  CRB is proud to help put on such a unique show with Digital Rodeo to close out CRS each year.”

Publicists, labels and booking agents wishing to submit an artist for consideration should contact Digital Rodeo Director of Marketing and Promotions, John Pyne at John.Pyne@DigitalRodeo.com.  Participating artists and hosts will be announced in the coming weeks.
