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 full-time US country stations, satellite providers, syndicators, and programming consultants.
In 1991, CDX clients’ music was distributed via the then new medium of CD. Today, our clients’ singles are digitally distributed via InstaTrack e-blast, integration into our smart phone app, and also included on our regular CD compilation disc.
CDX clients include a ‘who’s who’ of Country Music artists: all the greats from George Strait, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and many more over our 25 year history.
