HILLCREST (THE PREMIER MULTI-ARTIST COUNTRY RADIO DISC)
NAMED 2006 “COUNTRY PROMOTER OF THE YEAR” BY
THE EUROPEAN COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION


NEW YORK CITY (JULY 10, 2006) – Ross Allen the owner and manager of Hillcrest, the premier multi-artist Country Music Radio disc, has been named "COUNTRY PROMOTER OF THE YEAR" for 2006 by the European Country Music Association (ECMA). Festivities were held in Palafrugell, Spain on Saturday, July 8, 2006. Attendance was high with artists and industry people from Holland, the UK, Germany, and Spain attending.

Upon receiving the news of being named “COUNTRY PROMOTER OF THE YEAR,” Ross stated “I am truly honoured and overwhelmed to have been chosen as promoter of the year for 2006 by the ECMA members who voted for me.”

Founded in 1992 by singer/songwriter, producer and recording artist, Ross Allen, the Cambridge, Ontario, Canada-based Hillcrest multi-artist disc has gained the respect of recording artists, radio stations, record labels, studios, producers, and promoters from all over the world.

The key focus for Hillcrest is to get the recording artists heard and played on country radio.

The Hillcrest multi-artist CD series caters to country radio stations and music directors who play, support, and respect the eclectic sounds of today's country music. Each Hillcrest CD contains a selection of top-notch pre-screened radio friendly songs from a variety of country and acoustic based music genres. Key industry executives receptive to working with both independent and signed artists are serviced as well.

At this point in time Hillcrest has had over 650 charted singles to show for their efforts. Many artists from the Hillcrest family have gone on to secure writing, publishing, and recording deals with various major labels. 90% of the artists who release singles on Hillcrest, have a commercially available album for sale.

2006 ECMA winners in other categories from the Hillcrest family are: Female Artist of the Year - Lucie Diamond (UK), European Country Artist and ECMA Future Star Award - Lucie Diamond (UK), Group of the Year - Slow Horses (Germany), Vocal Collaboration of the Year - Dolly Parton & Roy Rivers - "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" (USA), Composition of the Year - "I Can't Look At That" (Schulz/Dyba) - by Slow Horses (Germany).
