You’re right about there being a number of factors involved. On the radio front, the Mediabase charts represent just a portion of stations that are playing the music. Mediabase-wise, “Fortunate Son” hit #3 on the Classic Rock chart this past week—which we are excited about! The album was also the #1 Most Added Album at Americana this week—which is huge news too. Not many of those Americana stations can be seen on Mediabase but the music is still reaching a massive audience every day via radio across multiple formats.
Ultimately, all the great radioplay, press, and tv appearances help showcase the incredible music on this album to bigger audiences—but it’s word of mouth that what will always be the best way to convince people about this album. Luckily, we’ve got the best fans in the world and thanks to each of you who have been raving about the album to your friends, more and more people are buying the music. So thank YOU!
We’re putting together a list of stations playing the new album (it’s loooong and continues to get longer each day) so those of you who want to make requests can use your time effectively and focus on the best stations for that. It’s very cool that so many of you want to help spread the word and we’ll keep giving you tools to do that. Like we said, we have the BEST fans in the world!
