This year marked the 40th Anniversary of the Country Radio Seminar (CRS) and the CRS Committee did a tremendous job in putting it all together. From March 4 -6, 2009, executives from radio, records and the music industry converged in Nashville, attending three days of informative panels, performances, a special keynote address by marketing guru Seth Godin and plenty of networking opportunities.

Attendees also received results from the largest and most comprehensive CMA and CRB funded study. If that wasn't enough, attendees were also treated to an in-depth and entertaining interview with legendary recording artist Barbara Mandrell by Kix Brooks of Country Duo Brooks & Dunn, a special music city jam featuring country superstar Tim McGraw and friends which was sponsored by the Academy of Country Music, and the annual New Faces show this year.

CRB President Becky Brenner shared her thoughts on this year's special CRS: "CRS-40 was a terrific celebration of the heritage, present and future of country radio and the county music industry. I had a sense that people were there to focus on what is possible and good in our business. Yes, we are facing many challenges but there was a real sense of hope at this years convention!"

"CRS-40 was a step into the future, with a respectful appreciation of our past added Ed Salamon, Executive Director, CRB. "Keynote speaker Seth Godin, panels on new distribution technology, PPM measurements for radio and CRB and CMA funded studies pointed the way forward while we celebrated CRS history with panels of long time attendees and a DVD retrospective given to all attendees."

Jeff Walker, Aristomedia, President/CRB, Media relations shared his thoughts on this year's seminar as well. "The Country Radio Broadcasters celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Country Radio Seminar with a great cross section of education, networking, and music. Since 1969, the organization has followed its mission of growth through sharing and this past year was no exception. Despite the economic situation of the country, the optimism experienced by the participants was infectious... Here's to the next 40 years."
