In the Pines Media Credential Request Form

Thank you for your interest in covering the In the Pines.
Media credentials are authorized and issued by the Birthplace of Country Music, the producers of the event.

The Birthplace of Country Music has established the following policies regarding Media Credentials and coverage for In the Pines:

  • Only members of the Media assigned to cover In the Pines from a recognized media outlet may qualify for a Media Credential. Please scroll down to fill out the application form. Please include links to your previous coverage of music festivals or shows. Journalists with no supporting articles will not be considered.
  • The Birthplace of Country Music defines “Media” as: journalists, photographers, editors, or producers who have a verified and specific editorial assignment to cover In the Pines for a specific media outlet (print, radio, TV) that generate original articles or reviews on general entertainment, music, news, travel, etc.
  • Bloggers and web journalists’ media requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Freelance journalists without a specific assignment from a media outlet will not be considered for Media Credentials.
  • Advertising personnel, marketing and sales associates, runners or guests, and other similar support staff employed by media outlets do not qualify for Media Credentials.
  • Radio stations should refrain from asking for more than two credentials per station. We cannot accommodate every person who has show on every station. Station managers or program directors should send an assignment letter for each assigned journalist.
  • If you are not from the Media, do not try to use other contacts you may know who are associated with In the Pines to leverage Media Credentials. The way to support this incredible community and music event is to buy a ticket.
  • If you are a patron who has tickets to In the Pines, please do not ask for a Photo Credential.
  • If approved for a Media Credential, do not take a valid Credential and give it to another person not approved by the Birthplace of Country Music staff.
  • Birthplace of Country Music staff maintains the right to issue, deny, or revoke Media Credentials at its discretion at all times.
  • Only members of the media with approved In the Pines Media Credentials will be allowed into the Festival.
