Taste of Country to Celebrate Up-and-Coming Country Artists With RISERS Program
Beginning March 1, Taste of Country (a partner website of The Boot) will be highlighting the hottest up-and-comers in country music with their RISERS program. The month-long rollout of exclusive content will include musical performances, exclusive interviews and more.
Taste of Country assembled its RISERS list based on input from a committee of radio programmers, talent bookers, managers, streaming service providers and digital media members. Dozens of rising artists were considered, and Taste of Country readers helped determine one of 2017's RISERS artists through the Hot Seat poll; that spot went to all-female quartet Farewell Angelina.
In early February, Taste of Country brought together its 2017 RISERS for a day-long photo and video shoot. All of that footage -- new music, artist profiles and interviews, killer performances and pictures, behind-the-scenes content and more -- will be released throughout March, giving country music fans the opportunity to get to know the future stars.
Readers can press play above to get a sneak peek at the RISERS shoot. Check Taste of Country's RISERS homepage for more.
