CRB Expands Voting For 'New Faces Show'
November 12, 2010 at 8:28 AM (PT)
The CRB (COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS) is opening and expanding its “New Faces of Country Music Show,” voting process to all Country radio station employees. This year’s nominees include: The BAND PERRY, LEE BRICE, EASTON CORBIN, DANNY GOKEY, JARON and the LONG ROAD TO LOVE, STEEL MAGNOLIA, DAVID NAIL, JERROD NIEMANN and JOSH THOMPSON.
Previously, only CRS (COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR) registrants from the preceding year were allowed to vote for the New Faces performers. The CRS New Faces committee approved the measure earlier this month.
“We opened up the New Faces voting process because we felt it was in CRS’ best interest to solicit input from as many people in our industry as possible,” says CRS New Faces Committee Chair, JOHN CRENSHAW. “We think this provides a much broader view of which artists Country radio is really excited about, and it also makes a greater effort to involve all those people that work so hard behind the scenes but aren’t always able to attend CRS.”
Voting remains open through FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19th The 2011 New Faces show is held FRIDAY, MARCH 4th, 2011 at 6:30p (CT) at the NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER. CRS convenes from MARCH 2nd-4th.
