Eileen Carey Whirlwinds Through Nashville's Country Radio Seminar

Eileen Carey Whirlwinds Through Nashville's Country Radio Seminar

(Nashville, TN March 1, 2017) Eileen Carey made so many impressive entrances at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville last week that she should have carried her own red carpet.

The annual event attracts hundreds of radio programmers from all over the US and is a must-attend for every artist seeking airplay.  

First on Eileen's breakneck agenda was the CDX “meet and greet” at the Swingin' Doors Saloon in the heart of Lower Broadway's entertainment mecca.  There she swapped news and road stories with host Joe Kelly, an old friend from earlier Seminars as well as catching up with the fellow artists attending.  CDX distributes CD copies of artists' songs to radio stations throughout the U. S. and regularly carries Eileen's music.

Next up was a swing through the all-important CRS Artist Welcome reception, hosted at the elegant Omni Hotel by the Country Music Association, of which Eileen is a member.

Eileen spent most of her afternoons recording interviews with radio personalities from all points of the compass, including one from England and another from Germany.

As if all this flurry wasn't enough to exhaust her, Eileen found time to host a luncheon for a gaggle of radio folks, journalists and music executives at the historic Merchants restaurant.  To spice up the meal, Eileen performed her new single, “Good Bad Girl,” (co-written by Al Bonhomme & Kris Bradley) as well as favorites from her stage show.  And, yes, the crowd did demand an encore. 

Ever the patriot, Eileen devoted a morning to pitching in with other artists to stuff “care packages” for Operation Troop Aid, a charity devoted to providing essentials to American military personnel.

Tired but triumphant, Eileen wrapped up the week a rousing performance with her band at Rippy's BBQ, one of the hipper downtown venues.

So no early calls, please.  The gal needs a rest.
