    As a follow up, Dan, here is some more information from the label:

    You’re right, it’s a frustrating experience. Most commercial stations typically wait for a song to chart on their respective format chart before they consider airplay for the song. And it’s easy to get lost in that circular argument because your question “How does a song chart if it’s not played first?” is totally valid and makes all of us want to rip our hair out. (we’d actually add a few exclamation points in addition to your question marks) That said, we’ve been able to get every song on the album played at radio multiple times over—which hardly ever happens in today’s radio world of singles. The single “Mystic Highway” has hit Top 15 at Classic Rock (a format which rarely plays new music) and got the album to Top 15 on the NonCommercial Triple A radio chart and Top 3 on the Americana radio chart recently. (“NonComm Triple A” stations are member-supported stations like KCSN in Los Angeles and WYEP in Pittsburgh where the single hit the top of their playlist and WFUV in New York City where the Album has been spotlighted as their Album of the Week and a new track was played every hour.)

    That type of chart activity helps other Commercial stations pay attention to the album. In fact, album track “Fortunate Son” has hit Top 3 at Classic Rock as well because of the wide awareness for the album (those of you listening to WZBA in Baltimore or WDVE in Pittsburgh are hearing it quite often). The next step is for radio stations to get feedback from listeners that they want to continue hearing the music. Team Fogerty is putting together a list of stations that will be most effective to contact that will continue to get “Mystic Highway” up the chart. We are also working on a radio special about the album that will air on stations around the country beginning Labor Day weekend so that even more people hear about the depth of this incredible album. As frustrating as it can feel, all of us are working each day to make sure the music is heard far & wide and there have been successes along the way like charting at various formats and concert simulcasts in New York City and Los Angeles, which is also rare in today’s radio world. We can all participate in continued success. Let us know if you’d like to help be part of that process…radio success is a team effort and it always starts with listeners like you wanting to hear the music on-air.

    Hey Dan,

    Vanguard Records and their radio department are working on this day in and day out. I don’t think it’s prudent to give you their entire detailed marketing plan for this album, but trust they are trying their best to get the single played. I’ve heard it a number of times here in Southern California myself. And you’re right – Country radio is a whole different beast. They’re working on it! I’m sorry I can’t give you more details than that at this point in time. But we have the tour coming up shortly and that should get the ball rolling. We really appreciate your interest in this and thank you for being such an active member of this community. Stay tuned for some cool things coming up!

    And don’t worry, it’ll pick up quite a bit once tour starts. :)

    And we possibly have something very cool up our sleeves for the end of September. ;)

    Hey Kenok,

    Welcome to the board! I hope you enjoy it and cruise around the site a bit. It’s always a work in progress but I hope you like what we’ve done so far. I’m so excited for you to see John in Catoosa! He’s not doing meet and greets on this tour, but hopefully his set list will keep you glowing well into the night. If you have any questions, let me know!

    Best,
    Swamp Girl
