US Country and Americana Radio Stations
Bill Wence Promotions worked hard behind the scenes for 18 weeks starting September 2021. Two hundred CDs were pressed in Nashville and sent out to radio stations across the USA. I am pleased to see 2022 kick off to a great start, the last report showed a total of 139 stations played my music.
More precisely, 84 Americana stations played various tracks from the album, The More I Give and 55 Country stations spun the track, Call It Home. This amount of airplay impacts the Roots Music Charts and the album appeared on various charts. Several tracks also popped up on the song charts!
Roots Music Charts
I guess this one is pretty special, No.2 in the Top 50 Australia Album Charts for a few weeks, No.3 at the end of 2021 and still there in 2022!
The snapshot above shows all the charts where The More I Give appears as of Jan 15, 2022.
Particularly pleasing is the Top 50 Contemporary Folk Chart where the album moved up and down a few times, but ended up at No.11 at the end of 2021. Still doing very well at No.14 in 2022, I am overwhelmed to see that one of my favourite artists, John Prine also on the same chart! The album sat amongst some pretty amazing names. Over several weeks, artists Lucas Nelson, Brandi Carlisle, Hayes Carll, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss and Charlie Parr shared a chart with me.
Nor can I be displeased with No.24 on The Top 50 Folk Album Chart. The album was at No.21 for a while and again, it is a pleasure to be on the list with such great names.
Song Charts at Year’s End
Three tracks kept pace on the Top 50 Contemporary Folk Song Chart. They also hovered and on Dec 11, 2021, Call It Home sat at No.16, The More I Give No.17, I’d Go Back Again No.18. The same tracks held steady on the Top 50 Australia Song Chart at positions No.3,4 & 5.
Song Charts in 2022
Nice start to the year. Top 50 Contemporary Folk Song Chart from Roots Music Report shows Call It Home, The More I Give and I’d Go Back Again at positions 17, 18 & 19. Early in the year they remained at 3,4 & 5 on the Top 50 Australia Chart
The promo has now ended, but I hope to stay in the hearts of those listeners that heard some of my tunes.
