Black River’s 60-Second Spotlight is a one-of-a-kind opportunity during the CMA Music Festival for artists to perform in front of an audience of music industry professionals with one minute on the clock to make a lasting impression!
While Black River’s 60-Second Spotlight does not have immediate judging or scoring, it does provide the opportunity for someone to perform live in front of an audience including industry professionals. With over 70 years of collective experience between them, Black River Entertainment’s President & CEO Gordon Kerr, Executive Vice President Rick Froio and Vice President of A&R Doug Johnson are looking forward to seeing some of the country’s brightest new talent.
Due to security restrictions, personal instruments are not permitted inside Music City Center. However, Fender guitars and a Nord keyboard will be provided on stage for participants’ use.
Black River Entertainment is home to Black River Records’ Abby Anderson and Kelsea Ballerini; Black River Christian’s Hannah Kerr and Josh Wilson; Black River Americana’s Carolina Story; as well as the GRAMMY-winning Black River Publishing and the historic Sound Stage Studios.
