CRS Offers New Revamped Agenda, Digital Liners System

The CRB (COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS) has released additional details of their agenda for CRS (COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR)-41, coming up from FEBRUARY 24th-26th, 2010 at the NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER.
This year's CRS agenda has been redesigned, allowing registrants to attend more events and panels, without having to choose between conflicting events at the same time. The new lineup ensures that no more than three panels are held simultaneously during the three-day seminar. Additionally, the designation of market-specific panels has been eliminated.
“We have worked hard to implement some fundamental changes to CRS that we hope will lay the groundwork for continued improvements in the future,” says CRB Agenda Chair JOHN PAUL. “We have listened to the feedback and suggestions we’ve received on how to improve CRS, and it is our goal to make sure Country Radio Seminar offers the most relevant and useful information possible to our attendees so that it can be used immediately to their benefit.”

Concurrently, CRB has announced a new digital liners system that will replace the on-site Artist Radio Taping Session at CRS. This new process will enable radio stations to submit their custom liner requests directly to CRB, which will deliver the liners to a specific list of registered artists on the station's behalf.
The artists will then record digital versions and return them to CRB. Radio stations can pick up their disc of liners when they arrive at CRS for registration. Stations must register for the new system by DECEMBER 18th to submit custom requests. Stations that have already registered for CRS are automatically included. The first 150 stations to sign up for the new system will be given priority access to the participating artists.
Artists that are already confirmed to participate this year are JASON ALDEAN, RODNEY ATKINS, THE BAND PERRY, BROOKS & DUNN, JASON MICHAEL CARROLL, CARTER's CHORD, TERRI CLARK, WHITNEY DUNCAN, SARA EVANS, FAST RYDE, PAT GREEN, JEWEL, BLAINE LARSEN, The LOST TRAILERS, JUSTIN MOORE, CRAIG MORGAN, MICA ROBERTS, STEEL MAGNOLIA, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, JIMMY WAYNE, CHUCK WICKS, MARK WILLS, GRETCHEN WILSON and DARRYL WORLEY.
