After MidNite host Blair Garner made a dream come true earlier this week when he exclusively debuted a new song, “In The Mean Time,” from unsigned country artist Sarah Marince. The impact of airing on After MidNite was immediate. “In The Mean Time” debuted at #40 on Mediabase’s Real Time Chart. After an initial run on After MidNite, stations and listeners across the U.S. will get exclusive access to the single, which was written by Gary Burr and Caroline Cutbirth, and produced by Victoria Shaw. Marince will be interviewed by Garner on After MidNite Tuesday morning (8/3) to discuss her reaction to her debut.
“On Tuesday night, we broke all the rules and debuted a song by an unsigned artist, something we’ve never done in the show’s seventeen-year history,” said Garner. “When I met Sarah, I knew this amazingly talented woman had a voice and a message that needed to be heard. Because I believe in the power of music AND the power of radio, I wanted to bring these forces together to do something quite remarkable.”
Due to overwhelming positive response, “In The Mean Time” will be made available on iTunes next week – two weeks earlier than originally planned. This announcement comes on the heels of the successful launch of After MidNite’s New Music Monday, a web-based video feature which launched last October on www.BlairGarner.com. Garner gives new and emerging artists a chance to promote their music as he interviews them on-camera for this exciting online extension of After MidNite. Viewers are also given access to additional information about the featured artists, including links to fan sites and available music on iTunes.
