Weatherford resident and country music radio legend Bob Kingsley is partnering with VNUE Inc. (OTCQB: VNUE) to produce limited-edition “instant live” recordings of Kingsley’s Acoustic Alley event at this year’s Country Radio Seminar.
This limited edition recording is provided compliments of Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40 and Band Against Cancer with Sarah Cannon to celebrate the 50th anniversary of CRS.
“I have been fortunate enough to witness countless live concerts throughout my career, and nothing can replace those memories,” said Bob Kingsley, a Radio Hall of Fame member and the longtime hose of Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40. “But thanks to Set.fm, we can offer something better – the ability for attendees to relive this night for years to come.”
These high-quality audio recordings will be made available exclusively to CRS attendees via custom-designed collectible laminates provided to them with their seminar registration. Each laminate will have a scratch-off code, where fans may then utilize VNUE’s set.fm iOS app to download the content directly to their mobile device. They may also download the content via the set.fm website.
The 8th annual Acoustic Alley performance is one of the most anticipated CRS after-hours events. This year’s lineup of songwriters has earned numerous No. 1 singles, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, Grammys, and millions in sales. The evening’s songwriters taking the spotlight are: Rhett Akins (Warner/Chappell), Chris DeStefano (Sony/ATV), Laura Veltz (Big Machine Music), JT Harding (THiS Music), Luke Laird (Creative Nation), Lori McKenna (Creative Nation), Brett James(Cornman Music/Warner/Chappell), Lee Thomas Miller (Warner/Chappell), Wendell Mobley (Warner/Chappell), Scooter Carusoe (BMG), and Heather Morgan (Sony/ATV).
“We are very excited to be working with country radio icon Bob Kingsley, and to be introducing our high-quality instant recordings and technology to a Nashville audience,” said Zach Bair, CEO of VNUE. “Acoustic Alley is truly unique in that the event features master songwriters performing their creations, and we will be there to capture every note of these very special performances.”
Bair said that VNUE will also have a booth at the seminar, providing information on its set.fm and DiscLive consumer products, as well as its Soundstr music recognition technology (MRT), which will help songwriters get paid their fair share through accurate tracking of song plays in venues, bars, restaurants and radio stations. Soundstr MRT will also assist radio stations and these other businesses negotiate fairer licensing fees.
