As you have hopefully seen by now, we have started featuring local and/or unsigned artists here on the KICK-FM website. And, FYI, we're just getting started. If you are a local country artist and you think you have what it takes to entertain the masses (and by masses, we mean at least 5 people), we want to hear from you.

Here are some of the artists/bands we've featured so far:

It's a tricky thing to be the judge, jury and executioner when it comes to deciding if a local artist is good enough to be featured. If you've ever been to a karaoke performance, it's no secret that there are some folks who aren't quite as talented as they might think they are. You never want to hurt someone's feelings, but you have to be honest.

That being said, we want to hear your stuff if you think you have what it takes. We love to feature folks that are out there trying to make it happen. There are no guarantees that you or your band will be featured. And, we're not looking for songs to play on the radio...that's normally reserved for the Jason Aldeans and Carrie Underwoods of the world. (It's not impossible, but you're gonna have to really turn our heads for that to happen)

It's real easy if you're still interested in submitting your stuff. Email me direct at Doc.Holliday@townsquaremedia.com. I'll respond to everyone who sends me something. Again, don't take it personal if you send something and we don't feature it here. It's a competitive world out there with artists that are trying to make it and if you think you have what it takes, perhaps we can assist in helping you get your music out there.
