CRB-Country Aircheck Awards

Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.® has announced the performers for the CRS 2010 New Faces of Country Music Show® to be held Friday, Feb. 26, 2010.
This year’s performers are:
Gloriana (Emblem Records)
Randy Houser (Universal South)
Love and Theft (Lyric Street)
Justin Moore (Valory Music Co.)

The New Faces of Country Music Show (co-sponsored by the Country Music Association) is one of the most anticipated events of the annual Country Radio Seminar. Five emerging artists that have achieved significant success at Country radio during the qualification period are selected to perform at the event, held in the CMA Performance Hall. Each act plays a 20-minute set during the show, which officially closes CRS every year.
“The CRS New Faces show is a great way to stay ahead of the curve and see tomorrow’s stars today,” says CRB President Becky Brenner. “Artists like Taylor Swift, Sugarland, Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban were all New Faces performers at one time, and that’s only in the last decade!”
The inaugural CRB-Country Aircheck Awards will also be presented at this year’s New Faces show. The awards recognize those individuals that have demonstrated outstanding efforts in the Country radio and music industries in the past year. A total of 28 awards will be presented between performances.
Country radio registrants who attended the previous year’s Country Radio Seminar select the New Faces of Country Music Show artists. The Nashville-based firm of Flood, Bumstead, McCready & McCarthy, Inc. validates the voting process.
