January 31, 2011 at 11:29 AM (PT)
Country music social network DIGITAL RODEO will once again host its annual CRS (COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR) wrap-up event with this year’s themed “British Invasion” show, to be held FRIDAY, MARCH 4th at CADILLAC RANCH in downtown NASHVILLE. The show kicks off at 10:30p (CT) or immediately following the CRS NEW FACES OF COUNTRY MUSIC SHOW & DINNER at the NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER.
This year, participants are covering songs from the “British Invasion” era of the 1960s, although songs from more contemporary U.K.-based artists will also be considered for inclusion. Performers in previous years have included: LAURA BELL BUNDY, JULIANNE HOUGH, MIRANDA LAMBERT, JAMIE O’NEAL, JAMES OTTO, JULIE ROBERTS, BLAKE SHELTON, JIMMY WAYNE, EMILY WEST, CHRIS YOUNG and many more.
DIGITAL RODEO Dir./Marketing and Promotions JOHN PYNE said: “DIGITAL RODEO has worked hard to put on a show that is creative in its concept and its appeal to the artists. We dedicate a substantial amount of time and resources each year to produce this show so that these acts can make a memorable impression and benefit from such a unique opportunity at CRS. We understand that NASHVILLE is a town of relationships, and DIGITAL RODEO is committed to helping promote the music and artists and remain a trusted partner in this business. This is going to be an exciting event!”
CRB (COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS) Dir./Sponsorship Sales SHARON ALLEN added: “We are excited to have DIGITAL RODEO partner with us again this year for another fabulous event. The past two years have provided some truly memorable moments, from BLAKE SHELTON and MIRANDA LAMBERT singing ‘If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)’ to LAURA BELL BUNDY performing an electrifying version of TINA TURNER’S ‘Proud Mary,’ complete with costumed dancers. The British Invasion theme should really push this year’s performers to come up with some interesting choices. CRB is proud to help put on such a unique show with DIGITAL RODEO to close out CRS each year.'
