Thats A Wrap For CRS 2024

Country Radio Seminar (CRS) 2024 wrapped up on Wednesday, March 1, after three days of musical performances, informative panels, and engaging sessions. This year’s event was a success, with attendees enjoying a full-day Streaming Summit, with insightful panels and CRS anchor events such as the Amazon Music Presents: “Country Heat at CRS” showcase, Warner Music Nashville’s Luncheon, Bob Kingsley’s Acoustic Alley, “Team UMG” at the Ryman, Big Machine Label Group’s Luncheon, BBR Music Group Decades Party, “Paddle Royale” Ping Pong Tournament, and the New Faces of Country Music Show and Dinner.

The annual New Faces of Country Music® Show, hosted by Elaina Smith and Katie Neal, closed out CRS 2024. The New Faces Show has played a pivotal role in the careers of almost every major country star. It is also one of the week’s biggest highlights and includes the CRS/Country Aircheck Awards.
