CDX was founded in 1991 by late Country Music Hall of Fame Broadcaster Charlie Douglas and national record promotion veteran Paul Lovelace as a delivery system for labels and artists to supply their upcoming singles to all fulltime US country stations, satellite providers, syndicators and programming consultants.
In 1991 CDX client’s music was sent out via the then new medium of CD. Today, our client’s singles are sent out on a digital Instatrack e-blast, integrated into our smart phone app and also included on our regular CD compilation that is mailed out….because according to an overwhelming number of country radio program directors – they like to listen to newly released singles by popping the CDX CD in the car while they drive home.
CDX services new releases from major record companies and selected independent record labels to:
- Over 1700 Country Music radio stations in the United States including the reporting stations
- 300 Classic Country and variety stations who play “some country”
- Major internet radio stations, programming services and satellite companies
- Trade magazines and country radio programming consultants
- Record companies, publishing companies, booking agencies and music industry professionals
- Through a partnership with the Country Music Association we service the CMA International member
DJ’s/presenters throughout Europe, Asia, and Australia.
So, in total, our client’s music gets sent out via:
- Our digital digest InstaTrack e-blast download
- Inclusion on the CD compilation
- Inclusion in the simultaneous e-blast accompanying the CD shipment
- Inclusion on our phone app
That’s FOUR impressions straight to the ears and eyes at ALL fulltime US country stations, satellite providers, syndicators, programming consultants and international country music presenters.
