John Marks, Spotify’s Global Head of Country Programming and former Sirius XM Senior Director of Country Programming, will address, among other things, the importance of Music Discovery – something that he spearheaded while at Sirius XM. He is also uniquely qualified to examine the differences and synergies between radio, satellite and streaming services.

BMLG Records Nashville returns as the music sponsor for the event, including a photo op and special, intimate performance from with their hottest new act, Ryan Follese (Pronounced "fall-uh-ZAY").  During his successful run fronting American Music Award-winning band Hot Chelle Rae, Ryan co-wrote their 3X Platinum #1 worldwide smash “Tonight, Tonight” and toured in 16 countries, including arena dates with Taylor Swift.  As a solo country artist, his debut single "Put A Label On It" has been featured on NBC’s TODAY show and has seen fans gravitating towards his sound.

For 23 years this has been one of the most special half days of any conference. The pace is quick, the speakers have come from country radio as well as businesses as diverse as Starbucks and politics,” said partner Mike O’Malley. “It’s a half-day of thought-provoking and actionable sessions that help set the stage for CRS.”

Brenner adds, “Radio prides itself on innovation, creation and preservation.  Our job is to make sure stations have the tools to accomplish all three.  Tools that help the station generate successful ratings and increase revenue. It is an opportunity to share, learn, grow and re-energize for the new year!”
