NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 24, 2018) – CDX Nashville announces a new sanctioned strategic partnership with The Americana Music Association℠ to implement their unique monitored airplay system to the Americana format. Utilizing their own patent-pending song recognition technology, the service will monitor terrestrial broadcast station signals that are being streamed over the internet as well as take into account internet-based radio streams. Song detection will be tracked in real-time and then reported to paid subscribers through the CDX TRACtion web-based interface. Detailed information on TRACtion Americana is available by visiting www.tractionamericana.com.
“It is our belief that monitored airplay tracking will allow promoters, labels and artists to more accurately measure success and optimize their marketing and promotion efforts,” Joe Kelly stated. “We are truly proud of our strategic partnership with the The Americana Music Association℠. We are honored to support and contribute to their stated range of objectives which foster and encourage an environment dedicated to long-term growth and creating continually expanding opportunities at artistic and financial levels. We believe the monitored airplay data generated from TRACtion Americana will be an empowering new instrument for the industry.”
Simply put, TRACtion Americana is a tool that can help artists develop their career in a smart, focused manner. It will enable artists, labels, managers, publicists, and booking agents to sustain their careers and make money. Monitored airplay charts will provide an accurate and transparent representation of all Americana albums and song tracks played by our radio reporters.
In addition, the data presented in CDX TRACtion will provide the basis for the new Americana Radio Airplay Albums Chart and Singles Chart, which will be published on americanamusic.org/radio and will continue to be emailed on a weekly basis to anyone who joins the mailing list,
CDX was founded in 1991 by late Country Music Hall of Fame Broadcaster Charlie Douglas and national record promotion veteran Paul Lovelace as a delivery system for labels and artists to supply their upcoming singles to all full-time US country stations, satellite providers, syndicators, and programming consultants. In 1991, CDX clients’ music was distributed via the then new medium of CD. Today, our clients’ singles are digitally distributed via InstaTrack e-blast, integration into our smart phone app, and also included on our regular CD compilation disc. CDX clients include a ‘who’s who’ of Country Music artists: all the greats from George Strait, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and many more over our 25 year history.
