Xiren is once again among the most added at Adult Contemporary radio with his hit "Ship of Fools" (it's called Big Enough on the album TRIP-R) ... that's gotta be some kind of record, as it's the 3rd week in a row for most added nationally.
Also on the Adult Contemporary radio front, Maree McRae has broken the Top 40 -- debuting at #35 nationally, with "Breeze" from her latest "Urgency." Also, look for this album to be deep enough to potentially chart at Americana. 2008 Americana "Promoter of the Year," Peter Knapp, who also worked Angie Steven's "Queen of this Mess," has been tapped to work the album to Americana radio nationally. The Rocky Mountain Music Network is being brought on to get the album out to Colorado radio and press, so be looking for it soon. Maree is in preproduction for an upcoming video for Breeze, that we hope will be a chart topper on VH1 this season.
Paonia's Honey Don't, featuring Bill Powers and Shelley Gray from Sweet Sunny South has found their self titled debut release breaking the Top 40 of the national Americana radio charts.
The Subdudes have been gaining more and more attention, at least here in Colorado, but as of today, their latest, Flower Petals is slipping a bit, falling from 34 to 44 on the AAA Public Breakout charts at FMQB.com ... hopefully that one too will break out at Americana radio here soon.
Otis Taylor's "Pentatonic Wars and Love Songs," is slippin on the Roots Rock Music Report Blues Chart, falling from 6 to 12 this week, while Spring Creeek's "Way Up on a Mountain" climbs a notch to #30 on the RMR Bluegrass chart ... Ethyl & the Regulars hold onto the #2 position on the RMR True Country charts with their latest Filler Up With...Ethyl & the Regulars.
