CDX Nashville has announced 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 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 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.
