New Country Station Hits South Florida’s Airwaves!

If you live in Broward County, you might be able to catch a new country station on your radio dial at 93.5FM (93.5 The Bull)!  It was quietly announced a week or two ago, but we didn’t have any info on it and we couldn’t even pick up the signal on the Broward/Palm Beach County line to test it out and report on it.  Now that our friends at the Sun-Sentinel are reporting on it with more details, we might as well chime in as well.

While we agree with the author of this article’s assessment that country is more popular in South Florida than ever, the same can be said nation-wide.  There are now more country radio stations than any other genre in the country, and while CD sales are declining across the board due to digital downloading, country CD sales have seen the smallest drop off.

We also must note that the writer is erroneous in his comment that “Miranda Lambert perform(s) regularly at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.”  To be more accurate, she played there last year, but hasn’t played more than a couple of shows in South Florida in the past several years, and that was her first time ever headlining Cruzan (co-headlining at that, as she shared the bill with Dierks Bentley).  The article is informative with the details of the new stations, but it lacks input from anyone in tune with the pulse of the local country music scene.

We are thrilled with the growth of country music in recent years, both locally and nationally, which is what our goal was when we first set out with the launch of SFCM.  We’ve seen it first hand as many businesses similar to ours have popped up to either compete with, or feed off of, our success, which just goes to show our hard work is paying off.

As always, we are here to promote country music and share our passion of country music with as many folks as possible, and having another South Florida country radio station can only help!

Are you able to pick up the signal?  If so, what major intersection were you near when you heard it?  It seems as if it has a very limited range, so we are curious to see if it will have much of an impact.  Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below!

Grayson Rogers Partners with HMG Nashville

 Cape Coral, FL based band Grayson Rogers proudly announced today that they have added HMG Nashville to their team as they gear up to release their first single off their upcoming debut album.

Grayson Rogers is quickly tearing through the barriers in the country music industry. With their debut album, All Fired Up scheduled for release on September 16th, there is certainly a lot of buzz around these guys that the rest of the country music scene is soon to find out.

Lead singer and front man, Grayson says, “I am both proud and excited to add HMG to the GR Team!  We had a strong team before and it’s continuing to grow.  We’re sure that HMG is going to help us push to new levels.  Their team is down to earth and full of good, honest people which fit ours very well.  I truly believe that we’re going to make big things happen together!  Like we say, ‘Go Big or Go Home’, right?!”

CJ (bass/guitar) adds in, “Being a young band trying to really get out there, we’ve often wondered what the next step would be.  I can’t imagine you just keep doing what you’re doing until some big label scoops you up and tosses you into the big arenas.  There definitely had to be a next step, and, for us, signing with HMG was it.  We’re so excited to get our song ‘Party Rocker’ out there to a national audience and have our music reach more people.  I’m eager to keep going and see where this journey takes us.”

HMG Nashville is a radio promotion company that has been delivering songs to radio and providing artist services since the early 90′s. With HMG’s client list including George Strait, Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and numerous major record labels, there is no doubt that Grayson Rogers is stepping into new, uncharted territory in their career. 

“HMG and I are very glad to be part of Grayson Rogers’ team. From the moment we heard their tracks, we knew we had to get their songs out there for the rest of the world to hear.” HMG Nashville A&R Rep, Darlene Fowler added.

The first single off the All Fired Up album is “Party Rocker”, an upbeat, foot stompin’ party song about the girl that is the life of the party no matter where she is or who she’s with!  It’ll be hitting radio on August 4th while Grayson Rogers embarks on their first ever radio tour on August 11th.
