COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR has announced that songwriters MATRACA BERG, NATALIE HEMBY and LORI McKENNA will perform for its WCRS LIVE! songwriter showcase, to be held THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd at CRS 2012.
The event, will take place from 3:30-5p (CT) on the second floor of the NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER in downtown NASHVILLE.
“This lineup presents a rare opportunity to experience the work of three of NASHVILLE’s best,” says BMI Assistant VP DAN SPEARS. “To have MATRACA BERG, NATALIE HEMBY and LORI McKENNA sharing the same stage is incredible. But the event will also serve to highlight the vital contributions made by women throughout the music and radio industries, while acting as the perfect complement to ‘Rising Through the Ranks,’ a program that BMI pioneered with the RADIO ADVERTISING BUREAU. Each year, BMI awards 25 scholarships to female radio executives to attend a NASHVILLE workshop on executive management best practices. The tremendous success of MATRACA, NATALIE and LORI will be a great reminder of the enormous successes enjoyed -- and driven -- by women throughout our industries.”
CRS 2012 is held FEBRUARY 22nd through 24th in downtown NASHVILLE. Registration is currently available at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
