been accused of playing everything from pop to country blues, to rock (LOL) to
traditional country to country rock, to Trisha YearwoodWynona Judd, The Eagles, Sheryl
Crow, Shania Twain, Madonna and (yes it is true!)The Rolling Stones….maybe the
truth is that all those influences have blended into my modern Country-Pop, Adult
Contemporary sound.

Country Radio Seminar (CRS)

at Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar (CRS) was and is an essential part of my
album and single releases for some years. I would always attend and perform at
the Seminar to kick off another album or single, while doing an in office
performance of the single I was releasing through CDX a well thought of radio
distribution service. Country was a direction that
happened because of my love of songs and singers, and country radio was the
first to respond to my recordings. My first great music breakthrough came when
I covered the Patsy Cline song “Walking after Midnight,” for a radio contest
“Out of Nashville” where my cover won the award over the established country
singers, and received national rotation play on a legendary 
Radio Network

Carey & Band @ Rippy’s Downtown Nashville Feb 20

My 2014 CRS performance at Rippy’s in downtown Nashville, a popular honkytonk
where I have performed a number of times, including past Country Music Awards
as well as the Country Radio Seminars, was notably one of the most unique
experiences in my career. A couple decades back from 2014 Nashville experienced
a terrible tornado which wiped out whole streets downtown and has since always
been a part of the city’s watch each season. We were dead in the middle of a
set that got off to a slow start due to some technical difficulties at the
start but we were gaining momentum in the packed room full of radio people when
the plug got pulled on us. I was completely baffled at first, not sure if that
was because our set was too pop for the crowd, or…and then the tornado sirens
began to scream get cover and the club staff started to direct the audience and
us to a underground garage where we spent the next hour, mingling with audience,
staff and performers. To the relief of all, the tornado just missed us and moved
on but it ended the music for the night in Nashville, and therefore my set.

Apart from performing and dodging bad weather, I was in
Nashville to showcase my fourth album, Let It Go, and meet radio programmers at
the 45th annual Country Radio Seminar. As always l did a series of interviews
with national and international media, and visited with radio programmers and
jocks in the convention center,

The RAW event at
Boulevard 3 on Sunset Strip in Hollywood with a runway stage was exciting! One
of the most glamorous and unique engagements I have played. A Raw artist event
is a multi-arts event and for me it was exposure to a large audience of young
and groundbreaking creatives in everything from music to fashion, crafts and
performance art. I was thrilled at the reaction to my music, and the
coordinators offered me a spot on their San Diego event in the Fall.
