"Dierks shows once again that he is a leader and not a follower! His latest project is the most innovative I've heard from anyone in a long time!"
- Joel Burke, KYGO, Denver

I am really enjoying these front-page Billboard ads, I don't know about anybody else!

This week, "Up on the Ridge" - the lead single from the June 8th album of the same name - moves up to #51, up 8 spots from last week! Excellent! It was up half a million in audience. Assuming it grows at just that same rate this week, it should be enough to move Dierks up to roughly #43. However, considering that today is its "official" add date for radio, it's possible we'll see some higher/faster growth. If that is the case, we could be looking at a Top-40 song as early as next week!

Keep up the great work, Congress. We're off to a great start. I know Janet M. (CA Rep), David (KY Rep), Jane (NY Rep) and our very own Chair, Ronna, have been chatting it up while voting on! And Shauna (in Michigan) is working so hard to get UOTR on her local WYCD. What have you been doing to create the buzz? Call, email, text, tweet, and/or find your DJs on Facebook! Exhaust all opportunities to get the song on the air! If you're in a city the Ridge Tour is hitting, you've got a great opportunity to get the song played -- they'll usually play new music in conjunction with a concert.

I will have my own Ridge Tour review hopefully on Friday ... so I hope you all have a wonderful week, and request, request, request!
