Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) has released the list of nominees for this year’s New Faces of Country Music® Show voting. The nominated artists for the show, to be held Friday, February 25 at Omni Nashville Hotel during CRS 2022 are Gabby Barrett, Priscilla Block, Blanco Brown, Callista Clark, Walker Hayes, Ryan Hurd, Parker McCollum, Niko Moon, Jameson Rogers, Elvie Shane, and Lainey Wilson.
“These 11 artists represent a bright future for country music,” says CRB New Faces Committee chair Chuck Aly. “They also give this year’s voters some very difficult choices to make.”
Voting for the Class of 2022 will be open Monday, November 15 through Friday, November 19 at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com. The five acts with the most votes will make up the lineup for the show. To view the New Faces of Country Music® qualification criteria, visit www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
Changes to the New Faces of Country Music® voter criteria went into effect last year and have been expanded to include a wider representation of the Country music industry. Eligible voters must be full-time employees primarily involved in the programming, promotion, and distribution of country music, from the following types of companies: broadcast radio, satellite radio, television outlets, and digital service providers, while expressly excluding those with vested interests in individual artists or musical works such as labels, managers, agents, and publishers.
Formed in 1970, the annual New Faces of Country Music® Show is one of the most anticipated events at Country Radio Seminar. Five emerging artists who have achieved significant success at Country Radio during the qualification period are selected each year to perform. The qualification period is November 1 through October 31, preceding the New Faces Show. The New Faces of Country Music® Show has played a pivotal role in the careers of almost every major Country star.
CRS will be held Wednesday, February 23 through February 25, 2022. The New Faces of Country Music® Show closes out the event each year. Registration for CRS 2022 is open and available for purchase at www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
CRS 2022 will feature a jam-packed schedule that includes Country Radio Seminar’s most anticipated events, including educational panels, virtual networking, and workshops designed to provide instant, actionable takeaways.https://www.countryschatter.com/2021/11/crb-releases-list-of-nominees-for-crs-2022-new-faces-of-country-music-show/NewsPress ReleaseBlanco Brown,Callista Clark,Country Radio Brodcasters s (CRB),Elvie Shane,Gabby Barrett,Jameson Rogers,Lainey Wilson,New Faces of Country Music,Niko Moon,Parker McCollum,Priscilla Block,Ryan Hurd,Walker Hayes
