The Americana Music Association, in conjunction with CDX Nashville, will launch a monitored Americana Radio Airplay Albums Chart and debut a Singles Chart on Jan. 16. The data for both charts will be based on monitored Americana radio airplay, and will be published on americanaradio.org.
This new partnership will enable CDX Nashville to implement their 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 detections will be tracked in real-time and then reported to paid subscribers through the CDX TRACtion web-based interface.
The charts will monitor Americana songs and albums that are encoded into the CDX TRACtion database by radio chart editor Michele Rhoades, who also oversees radio development.
“We are thrilled to partner with CDX Nashville and their incredibly supportive team,” said Jed Hilly, Executive Director of the Americana Music Association℠. “With their innovative platform and the debut of our new Singles Chart, we hope to bring our Americana radio charts to another level where we can continue to justly serve our artists in the community and their music being played across the country.”
“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,” said CDX Nashville VP Joe Kelly.
