CRS New Faces of Country Music Class of 2019 Announced, Including Lindsay Ell, Jimmie Allen, Dylan Scott & More

Up-and-comers know they’re on the right track when they’re invited to play the New Faces of Country Music show at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. Only a handful of rising stars get the honor of performing before the industry crowd, which includes radio programmers, executives and members of the national media.

The 2019 New Faces class features Dylan Scott, Jimmie Allen, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell and LANCO. The new class will take the stage at the Omni Hotel for the 2019 New Faces show on Feb. 15.

This year’s class was narrowed down from a group of nominees that also included Jordan Davis, Morgan Evans, Riley Green, Walker Hayes, Chris Lane, Mitchell Tenpenny, Morgan Wallen and Aaron Watson.

The New Faces of Country Music show can help artists reach the “next” level—just ask the 2014 class of Cam, Brothers Osborne, Kelsea Ballerini, Old Dominion and Chris Janson. The 2018 class featured Lauren Alaina, Luke Combs, Midland, Carly Pearce and Michael Ray.
