Congratulations to all of the artists making this week's Mediabase Adds list. Special kudos to those representing the most added for NEW ARTISTS - Kelleigh Bannen, Tyler Farr, and Maddie & Tae. These adds to major reporting stations mean people are paying attention to the new music Keep that trend going! YOU ARE THE VOICE! You are being heard!

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!
