Last Chance to Vote for the RISERS Hot Seat
You have less than 48 hours to decide which new country artist will join the others as Taste of Country RISERS. After Monday, the list will be locked. Have you done all you can to make sure your favorite newcomer is included?
The RISERS Hot Seat winner will get the same treatment as those chosen by an advisory board made up of radio programmers, talent bookers, managers, streaming service providers and digital media members. That means video performances and interviews, photo shoots and exclusive coverage throughout 2017. No other new artist platform will give this much attention to the best and brightest talent in Nashville and beyond.
We looked at dozens of country artists to decide which were most likely to break in 2017. Eligible Hot Seat artists include Luke Bryan tour mates Jon Langston and Adam Sanders, former Hot Chelle Rae singer Ryan Follesse, teen sensation Tegan Marie and country music video innovator Bailey Bryan. Rising songwriters, brilliant vocalists and energetic stage performers on the brink of blowing up round out 2017’s list of stars-in-the-making.
Vote for your favorite artist once every four hours until the poll closes on Jan. 23, 2017 at 11:59PM ET, and make sure to tell us who you want to win by using the hashtag #tocHotSeat on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The full list of 2017 RISERS will be revealed on March 1.
