Country music continues its widespread popularity and ranks as one of today's healthiest music genres. From coast to coast, across income brackets, demographics, and in big and small towns, it is clear that Americans connect with Country and this shows in the numbers. Over 42% of Americans are considered Country music fans! Who is this Country music consumer and how do they discover music, how much do they purchase, and what is their preferred music format? CMA’s Research department will share a current snapshot of these fans. The music discovery platform, Shazam, will share case studies from partnerships with CMA's successful TV show integrations including the #1 rated CMA Awards that include best practices and music sales drivers. CMA staffers will also share how the organization continues to heighten the genre globally and how you can become involved with this exciting segment of the music industry.
