THIS WEEK'S MEDIABASE ADDS LIST ... IS YOUR STATION TUNING IN TO YOUR FAVORITE NEW MUSIC?


Congratulations to all of the artists making this week's Mediabase Adds list. People are paying attention to the new music and it's starting to show by these adds to reporting stations. Let's keep that trend going! 

REMEMBER: An add does NOT guarantee air play, it simply means the station has added the song to their library. Air play is based on demand and sales, so get on the phone/internet/text and start requesting your favorites now. Most major radio stations now allow you to text or email your requests so it's not just making a phone call anymore. If you don't request, don't complain when you don't hear your favorite artist on the radio, plain and simple. These guys need our help, so let's show them we support them and their hard work. Don't depend on their side to do all the promoting. If you really love an artist, jump in there and work with them to get the word out. Your voice does make a difference and it shows in these add numbers each week. Radio is listening, we just have to keep talking.

Just a side note: Notice the number of new artist adds this week. These numbers show that radio is listening to you. Keep requesting and get these artists added nationwide! Way to go!

 Credit: Scott Stem

Scotty McCreery debuted his highly anticipated new single “Southern Belle” on “FOX & Friends” All-American Summer Concert Series last Friday. The song, written by Sean McConnell and Jason Saenz, will be available for purchase Aug 24 and impacts radio Sep 7. “Southern Belle” is the first single from McCreery’s upcoming new album due out in early 2016.  Watch the “FOX & Friends” performance here.

As part of the All-American Summer Concert Series, “FOX & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Brian Kilmeade presented McCreery with an RIAA-certified Gold Single plaque representing more than half a million sales and streams of his recent Top Ten Hit “Feelin’ It,” written by Frank Rogers and Matthew West. This is the singer/songwriter’s latest RIAA-certified single, having already earned three Platinum certifications for his singles “I Love You This Big,” “The Trouble with Girls,” and “See You Tonight.”

“What a way to start the morning by debuting my new single and then receiving a Gold record for ‘Feelin’ It’,” said an excited McCreery. “I have the greatest fans in the world and I thank them for supporting me and my music. I hope they will love ‘Southern Belle’ just as much!”

This summer, McCreery is featured in Fandango.com's "I Love Movies" original video series. Watch him talk about his favorite movie, "Miracle," here. He is also on the road throughout the summer, both on his own and as the special guest on the Rascal Flatts RIOT 2015 Tour. Visit ScottyMcCreery.com for tour dates and ticket information.

In-between concert dates, the Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope recording artist is writing songs as well as working in the studio on his next album with producer Frank Rogers. The ACM, CMT Music, ACA, and ICM Award winner scored two consecutive Top 10 hits (“See You Tonight” and “Feelin’ It”) from his last album See You Tonight, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It was his third album to debut at No. 1 on a Billboard chart following his Platinum-certified first album Clear As Day, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, and his Gold-certified album Christmas with Scotty McCreery, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Holiday Albums Chart.

ROUGHSTOCK TO PREMIERE CHELSEA BAIN'S "POWER OF A WOMAN" VIDEO #POWEROFAWOMAN


Country singer/songwriter Chelsea Bain reveals a softer, more vulnerable side in her new release "Power of a Woman," and www.Roughstock.com is set to premiere the heart-tugging music video on Tuesday morning, August 4, 2015.

"We really dialed it back from my last video," said Chelsea, referring to her "James Dean" video, where a car was flipped and caught fire. "There were so many ways we could have gone with this song, and I think we captured a storyline that will really hit home with men and women alike."

The clip was directed by Layne Pavoggi and produced by Grace Le for Mother Productions, LLC. Tim Davis served as the director of photography for the beautiful clip. The Interior narrative was shot in a home in Culver City, CA, and the stunning exterior performances were shot at the El Mirage Dry Lake in Adelanto, CA.

Chelsea has built her career on performing strong songs she has written from her own experiences and observations, but she turned to an outside source "Power of a Woman." Written by Lee Brice, John Ozier, Kyle Jacobs, the song was included on Brice's 2010 album Love Like Crazy.

"I fell in love with this song, when I first heard it on Lee's album," said Chelsea. "I always thought it would be interesting singing it from a female perspective, especially considering the strong lyrics, and I was thrilled when I found out I could record it."

Chelsea has created a legion of fans across the country through constant touring, much of it on the Bass Pro/Webasto Stage at NASCAR races. Her high-energy stage show, captivating original music, and a bigger-than-life persona have yielded over 330,000 Facebook "Likes."

"I'm really in a man's world when I perform at races, but any time I sing 'Power of a Woman' I can tell men and women are really listening to these lyrics. Sometimes I'll even see a guy's wife punch him in the arm, when the song's over," chuckled Chelsea. "
