CRS logo

Lady Antebellum, James Otto, Kellie Pickler, Chuck Wicks and the Zac Brown Band have all been selected to perform at the New Faces Show and Dinner, which will conclude the 2009 Country Radio Seminar (CRS).  Because of the considerable airplay these artists have seen over the last year, they will each be given the honor of performing a 20-minute set during the show.  

CRS is an industry convention hosted by Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) that targets programmers, executives and key personalities.  The event will take place March 4-6 at the Nashville Convention Center.  To get a feel for exactly what this "insider" event is like, check out Jonalee White's "Long Road to Nashville" episodes 2 - 5, in which she meets tons of notable artists and executives at CRS 2008.

Natalie Maines - jail bait?

A defamation lawsuit has been filed against the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines due to a comment she made about the controversial West Memphis Three case, in which three 8-year-old boys were slain in 1993.  Maines spoke out in support of the three people convicted of the murders and suggested that Terry Hobbs, one of the boys' stepfather, was instead involved in the slayings.  What initially sparked celebrity interest in the case was a documentary that highlighted the convicted teenagers' interest in heavy metal music as a potential reason for their convictions.

One thing's for sure, the Dixie Chicks are known to be very outspoken when it comes to political affairs.
