These guys all lean traditional, but their recordings still have an overall 'contemporary' production style. You can have traditional elements here and there, but at the end of the day it still has to sound like something that could be a big hit on TODAY'S Country radio. It can't sound like it came from 20-30 years ago or more. Straight up Traditional Country melodies will be too common here, try to mix it up a bit. I don't want a bunch of twangy sounding songs about rodeos and big belt buckles. Those just don't really work for today's country." Your demo quality needs to be competitive with songs being pitched on Music Row. The specific deal points will be negotiated on a song-by-song basis directly with the Publisher. Please submit one to three Songs online or per CD, include lyrics. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by the Publisher - No full critiques.

CUSTOM CRITIQUES

Please include a note specifying the aspects you would like the listener to address.
For example, some members like to have their craft (lyrics, rhyme, structure, etc.) closely critiqued. Others want to know for which genre their writing is best suited (sorry, but we can't recommend specific listings for you to pitch to). Still others want a review of their photos, bios, package, etc.
The submission fee is $20 per song. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and make sure to specify if you want the tape (or CD) back, or just a critique. Remember, these critiques are for your own edification and development and NOT targeted for a label or publisher, and therefore will not be forwarded.
