Congratulations to all of the new artists making this week's Mediabase Adds list. People are paying attention to the new music and it's starting to show by the increasing number of stations adding these artists to their libraries. Let's keep that trend going! This list comes to me with both new and established artists, but I choose to only showcase the new artists so you can see how great they're doing as a whole. 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 for them and with them!

This Week's Top 3 Heavy Hitters:

Lee Brice .... 10 Adds with "Hard 2 Love" ... Apparently radio and country fans still can't find anything "Hard to Love" about Lee Brice.

Greg Bates ... 8 Adds for "Did It for the Girl" ... Looks like the girls are making sure radio's doing it for Greg in return!

Chris Young ... 11 Adds for "Neon" ... Chris Young has really made an impact with the entire Neon CD.
