Luke Combs, Maren Morris Announced for Accountability in Country Music Q&A for CRS 2021

by Quentin Blount

Country music stars Luke Combs and Maren Morris are set to participate in a virtual Q&A session during the 2021 Country Radio Seminar.

Combs and Morris’ segment during the seminar will take place on February 17th and is being sponsored by All Access. It will feature a Q&A session with the two country stars, focusing on accountability and how they view their roles as artists. The 2021 CRS is being held as a virtual event this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It takes place from February 16th to 19th.

NPR Music critic and correspondent and the Nashville correspondent for WXPN’s World Café, Ann Powers, will be moderating the session. The conversation between Powers, Combs, and Morris will take a look at what country music means to this new generation of stars. It will also address country music’s sometimes problematic past and how they can hold themselves accountable to help reshape it for the better.

Combs and Morris, the 2020 CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, and 2020 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year are a welcome sight to the four-day CRS 2021: The Virtual Experience agenda.
