CRS is February 13-15th in Nashville
Garth Brooks is set to perform a special show and participate in a Q&A for attendees of this year’s Country Radio Seminar (CRS) in Nashville. Brooks will recreate his intimate one-man show he performed in Las Vegas for several years at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, February 13th, following the Amazon Music Presents: Country Heat showcase.
The next day, Brooks will be the subject of a special Q&A with VP of Amazon Music, Steve Boom at 10 am CT as part of the panels and seminars held during the three day event. Brooks has had an exclusive partnership with Amazon Music for streaming and digital downloads for a few years.
Brooks has announced his new album, Fun, will be released sometime this spring. Amazon pre-orders will stay at $10 until Brooks’ birthday on February 7th when the price will likely rise. Advanced tracks include the lead single, “All Day Long” and its B-side “The Road I’m On” — which is also the new stadium tour opener — as well as current single “Stronger Than Me.” A rough mix of the America’s Got Talent song “Courage Of Love” has also been released to fans who’ve pre-ordered, although no word if the song will be included on Fun.
Brooks has also stated 2019 is “the year of vinyl” as he plans to release his catalog on the growing format. Brooks has alluded to a vinyl boxed set on his Facebook Live Series, Inside Studio G, although no other details are available. No word on what titles will be included or if any will be released individually. He will release more details on the weekly series as they become available including how fans can reserve special numbered editions.
CRS is a three day event of educational programming, panels of key business leaders in various fields, presentations on new technology, business practices, and personal career development topics, new music showcases, and much more. It helps shape country radio for the year.
