Hunter Hayes, David Nail, Sunny Sweeney, Thompson Square and Eli Young Band have been named as the CRS 2012 New Faces of Country Music Show performers. Chosen by members of country radio, the annual new artist showcase closes out Country Radio Seminar and is one of the most anticipated performances each year. Co-sponsored by the Academy of Country Music and Muscular Dystrophy Association, this year’s show will be held Friday, February 24 at the Nashville Convention Center.
“The future of Country radio happens every twenty minutes on the New Faces of Country Music Show!, John Crenshaw, New Faces Committee Chair, said. “Radio has spoken clearly with this year’s wonderful lineup of Hunter Hayes, David Nail, Sunny Sweeney, Thompson Square and Eli Young Band for the crown jewel of CRS 2012.”
CRS sponsor Lucchese Boots will provide each New Faces performer with a custom-made pair of Lucchese Boots. CRS will be held February 22-24 in Nashville. The $499 Regular Registration rate for CRS 2012 is currently available at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com. Tickets for last year’s New Faces showcase sold out more than six weeks in advance.
