Hey Y'all! Lot's of stuff happening in Flatland Tourists land these days! Here's a quick update:
The new record, Carry Me Home, went to radio about four weeks ago and early reports have been great. It's been added to the rotation playlist at 94 Americana stations across the country so far and is already in "medium" rotation (10-19 plays per week) at several stations. The record made a big move on the Americana Music / Billboard charts this past week, too, moving up 45 spots from the past week to #139 (out of 1000 reporting). Many, many thanks to our promotion company, Bill Wence Promotions. And, we can't thank the stations enough for playing it and we appreciate you fine folks letting those stations know you dig hearing our tunes on the air. Please remind them to spin it some more, our goal for this release is to crack the "Top 100." With your help, it'll get there!
The "official release date" for the record is September 12. You'll be able to get hard copies and downloads at all the major on-line locations then. In the meantime, you can get a free download of the track "Deep End" now by subscribing to our email list. Just click here.
We've got a lot of shows coming up this fall, too. Check the calendar on the website for details, hope to see you there. We're especially excited about our "local" CD Release Party show. It's gonna be Saturday, Oct. 7th at Southern Range Brewing Company in Monroe, NC. We start at 7 pm on the outdoor stage. If you've not been to this brewery, you are gonna love it! It's gonna be a large time, for sure, don't miss it!
And, stay tuned for a BIG show announcement coming up around the first week of September. We're really looking forward to this one, and we think you will be, too.
So, okay, you fine folks are "up to speed" now. Remember, call or email your favorite Americana radio station and request a tune and mark those shows on your calendar! See you all soon!
Y'all be kind to each other ~ Peace & Love,
