The CRS New Faces of Country Music Show is co-sponsored by the Country Music Association and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The show is one part of a three-day Country Radio Seminar, which is designed to inform and advance the exchange of ideas within the industry.
“Our New Faces show is always one of the highlights of Country Radio Seminar because attendees get a chance to see some of Country radio’s brightest up-and-coming stars,” CRB President Mike Culotta said. “The CRB board chose to include more of the Country radio industry in the voting process this year, which we feel gives us a better understanding of what Country radio listeners out there are really responding to in terms of the newer acts. Congratulations to all of this year’s New Faces performers. I know it’s going to be a terrific show!”
