COUNTRY MUSIC WEEK 2022 PUBLICIST ACCREDITATION

WHEN IS COUNTRY MUSIC WEEK 2022?
Country Music Week 2022 is Thursday, September 8 – Sunday, September 11, 2022 in Calgary, AB.
Country Music Week 2022 is a production of the Country Music Association.

WHO NEEDS TO REGISTER FOR CREDENTIALS?
Any publicist who will be working with an artist at any official Country Music Week 2022 events (SiriusXM Top of the Country, CCMA Songwriters’ Unplugged Sessions, CCMA Legends Show, CCMA House, CCMA FanFest and CCMA Music Industry Gala Dinner & Awards, 2022 CCMA Awards Red Carpet) must register for a publicist credential.

If your artist is ONLY appearing at Country Music Week 2022’s Media Row, you will not register for a publicist credential. You will be credentialed with your artist on-site at Artist Check-in. Additional details regarding participating Media Row credentials will be provided at a later date.

WHAT ABOUT THE ARTIST’S FAMILY, MANAGER, BOOKING AGENT, MUSICIANS OR OTHER PEOPLE AT THE RECORD LABEL?
They will need to request credentials through the CCMA or purchase a delegate pass for Country Music Week 2022.

MEDIA OPPORTUNITIES
We will offer media opportunities at only certain CCMA-sanctioned events. These include SiriusXM Top of the Country, CCMA Songwriters’ Unplugged Sessions, CCMA House, CCMA FanFest and the 2022 CCMA Awards Red Carpet. All artists who are performing or appearing at these events can participate in media opportunities. Feel free to contact the penelopePR team at [email protected] for more information or with any questions.

To note: there will be no official media room at the CCMA Music Industry Gala Dinner & Awards, only a photo wall. Publicists who are accredited for this event will only have access to the photo wall area, which will be outside of the gala venue. Should a publicist wish to sit with their artist/a team, they will be required to purchase an event ticket to gain access.

PLEASE SUBMIT APPLICATIONS NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, AUGUST 5.

REMINDER: This application is for publicists only. Artist’s families, booking agents, managers, musicians, publishers, record label employees (except for publicists), road managers, etc. will not be able to use this registration for Country Music Week 2022 credentials.  Please contact CCMA Membership + Ticketing department at [email protected].

Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee approval. You will receive a notification regarding the status of your credential request by August 26, 2022.

Every publicist who will be working at Country Music Week 2022 must be credentialed separately. One publicist per company may be credentialed for each artist. Publicist credentials are nontransferable and are only to be used to fulfil job duties. The name on your publicist credential must match a government issued photo ID. If a person is caught wearing a credential that does not match their photo ID, the credential will be held by CCMA Communications until it is claimed. Photo ID must be presented to reclaim any held credentials and must always remain with the credentialed individual.

COMPANY AND CONTACT INFORMATION
Please list the contact information for the person responsible for submitting your company’s credentials. This area does not submit your name for a credential. Please include the names of all publicists from your company who require credentials at the bottom of the form.
