Creating a brand, building a fan-base, gaining exposure, and shaping a team are all important components to establishing a music career, but how do these things come into play for the country music scene, specifically? This workshop will be conducted by three Canadian industry professionals who have navigated their way through the trials of the music scene and used strategies to build successful careers for artists in the country music world.

All About That Song

With radio being key to a successful career in country music, the importance of a great song and the work that goes into it must be understood. It doesn't happen overnight but takes a slow build, working with the top artists and writers, securing a publisher, and eventually finding a professional who can plug that song for airplay. This workshop will bring advice from experts in radio-plugging, songwriting, and publishing to lead a conversation about what it takes to nurture the perfect song in country music.

MCMA members that are not already Manitoba Music members will receive a 50% dicount.
