CRS 2022 New Faces Of Country Music To Feature Gabby Barrett, Walker Hayes & More

The Country Radio Broadcasters has revealed the lineup for the CRS 2022 New Faces of Country Music show, set to take place on February 25, 2022, features Gabby Barrett, Walker Hayes and more.

The event, which will mark the culmination of the 2022 Country Radio Seminar to be held February 23-25 in Nashville, will feature Barrett, Hayes, Parker McCollum, Jameson Rodgers and Lainey Wilson.

During the annual event, which was established in 1970, five emerging artists who have achieved significant career elevation during the qualification period (Nov. 1 – Oct. 31) are selected to perform.

“There were no bad options in this year’s New Faces election slate, so it’s not a surprise the final lineup is stellar,” said CRB New Faces committee chairman Chuck Aly. “The only thing more exciting than what these artists bring to this year’s show is that we’ll all get to experience it in person!”

Barrett earned her second No. 1 Billboard Country Airplay hit with the three-week chart-topper “The Good Ones.” She was also nominated for three Country Music Association awards this year, including new artist of the year as well as single and song of the year for “The Good Ones.”

Hayes saw incredible career success this year with the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 top 5 hit “Fancy Like.” The song also earned Hayes his first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay radio chart. The song recently earned a Grammy nomination for best country song.
