Superstars Carrie Underwood, Brooks & Dunn Among Those Already Confirmed
(Nashville, TN – November 16, 2009) In the latest evolution of the Country Radio Seminar experience, Country Radio Broadcasters has announced a new digital liners system that replaces the on-site Artist Radio Taping Session at CRS.
The new digital process enables 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 Country Radio Broadcasters. Radio stations will pick up their disc of liners when they arrive at CRS registration. Stations must register for the new system by Dec. 18, 2009 (the CRS 41 Advance Rate deadline) to submit custom requests. Stations that have already registered for CRS are automatically included.
“With this new and improved digital system, Country Radio Broadcasters has used today’s technological advances to provide radio with liners of the highest possible quality. At the same time, we are providing artists with an opportunity to record those liners in a manner that will work with their busy schedules,” says CRB Board Member John Zarling, who is overseeing the digital transition along with fellow Board Member Clarence Spalding. “If the caliber and diversity of artists already confirmed is any indication, CRS 41 is poised to deliver an amazing package of liners for our registrants.”
The first 150 stations to sign up for the new digital liners system will be given priority access to the participating artists. Artists already confirmed include: 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.
