Glen Campbell to receive CRS Career Achievement Award at Country Radio Hall of Fame event; limited tickets remaining
(Nashville, Tenn. – Jan. 30, 2012) The CRS 2012 New Faces show and Renaissance Nashville hotel have sold out prior to Country Radio Seminar for the second year in a row.

As a result, the CRS Board of Directors has extended the $499 seminar registration rate, but registrations will no longer include a ticket to the New Faces of Country Music Dinner and Performance, held Friday, Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m. in the Nashville Convention Center.  Rooms at the Renaissance Nashville hotel, which serves as the host hotel for CRS and is located adjacent to the Convention Center, have also sold out.

“For the second consecutive year, we have sold out our New Faces show,” says CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “Since we are no longer able to offer New Faces tickets with CRS 2012 registrations, we have decided to extend our $499 Regular Rate, which had previously expired on Jan. 27.  We are proud to put on such a unique and in-demand event that showcases some of the brightest new stars at our New Faces of Country Music Dinner and Performance.”

Additionally, tickets are limited for the Country Radio Hall of Fame Dinner and Ceremony, held on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 6 p.m. in the Nashville Convention Center Ballroom.  The event includes presentations of the CRS President’s Award and Career Achievement Award.  The 2012 Career Achievement Award goes to legendary artist Glen Campbell.

“Glen Campbell is an entertainer in every sense of the word,” says CRS President Mike Culotta.  “His decades-long career in music, television and film has cemented his place among the icons in our format, and we are honored to recognize his pioneering efforts with the CRS Career Achievement Award.”

As previously announced, the CRS President’s Award recipient is Bob Kingsley, and the 2012 Country Radio Hall of Fame inductees are Beverlee Brannigan, Moby, Ron Rogers, Eddie Stubbs, Rusty Walker and Bill Whyte.
