We look forward to celebrating and showcasing them in MUSIC CITY during the week of the CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL,” said CMA CEO STEVE MOORE.
“Eight years ago, CMA launched its first international showcase event during CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL week. Within a few years, we had to add a second show to accommodate the number of submissions we were receiving. In 2012, we will celebrate our ninth year of international showcases with a lineup that includes more than 20 artists. It’s been fascinating to watch these events grow year after year, and I’m extremely proud of the success we’ve had so far.” said ARISTO MEDIA CEO/Pres. and CMA Board member JEFF WALKER.
