It's here.

The first annual Billboard Country Music Summit, in association with CMA, will open its doors in just a few hours and will feature broad programming that encompasses virtually all aspects of the country music business.

The keynotes - with Martina McBride (today) and Tim McGraw (Tues.) - and the slate of panels will touch on the most challenging issues in the country space: recording, radio, touring, publishing, sponsorships, digital/mobile, as well as other areas.
