said recently - Never give up! If you have to keep telling people how good your demo is. You need a new demo! Quit telling people how good it is! They will tell when it is good! When everyone loves it, you have something! Then, don't quit, keep making more!CANADIANS YOUNG AND OLD!Your age and your heritage

song that has a country vibe to it! We do recommend your short version of a song if you have 2 versions of a song!TOP 40 RADIO NORMALLY PLAYS SONGS THAT ARE LESS THAN 4 MINUTES LONG.
We will in some cases edit songs, that are over 4 minutes in length, to a radio edit. The reason we have to do this, is
playing 50 songs in 3 hours, sometimes requires shortening of some songs. We try not to do this, but when necessary
we will. We accept all kinds of country songs! OUTLAW COUNTRY/COUNTRY ROCK/POP COUNTRY/TRADITIONAL COUNTRY/COUNTRY BLUES/FOLK COUNTRY NEW COUNTRY/ALT COUNTRY.

below as this is a great way to tell your story

promote you and your song! We will no longer consider songs without a soundbite!Can your song make The Top Ten? THE VOTERS POLL.
We have fans voting from over 60 countries, who have a passion for music and even without your own fans, if your song is good, you will climb the chart! Your song will play to over 25,000 listeners
each week on over 50 stations world-wide.
The poll is released once a WEEK and each voter must vote for at least 7 songs on the poll,
but can vote for as many as they like.
Each voter can only vote once per week and we hope only voters who know most of the music
on the countdown will vote.
