Congratulations to all of the artists making this week's Mediabase Adds list. This week AGAIN was all about the new artists, having more adds than established artists as a whole! People are paying attention to the new music and it's starting to show. Let's keep that trend going! I've started posting the list with both new and established artists so you can see the comparison in numbers.

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.

Just a side note: The number of new music adds this week speaks volumes for how much radio is liking the new stuff. Way to go


PARMALEE .... 29 Adds for "Carolina" ... we LOVE this one. Probably one of our top favorites dating back to when they released it the first time and when Benton Blount released it as well.

JOEL CROUSE ... 22 Adds for "If You Want Some" ... Looks like fans and radio definitely want some.

ERIC CHURCH ... 14 Adds for "Like Jesus Does"
