How to Get Your Song on the Radio

If you want to make it in the music business then you’ve got to get a #1 hit on the radio… but how do you do that?

The good ol’ days of sending your song to the radio station are long gone, so if you want to get on the radio you need to work with a radio promoter.

Jerry Duncan is the most successful, reputable radio promoter I know.

Since 1982 he has helped nearly every major artist land #1 hits on the radio; 72 number 1 singles in all!

More importantly (for you) he has been instrumental on breaking new country artists like…

Jason Aldean “Hicktown”, “Why”
Tim McGraw “Indian Outlaw”, “Don’t Take the Girl”
Toby Keith “Should Have Been a Cowboy”
Josh Turner “Long Black Train”
Blake Shelton “Austin”, “Ol’ Red”, “The Baby”
Soggy Bottom Boys “Man of Constant Sorrow”
Trick Pony “Pour Me”, “On a Night Like This”, “Just What I Do”
Brad Paisley “He Didn’t Have to Be”, “Me Neither”
Alison Krauss “When You Say Nothing at All”
Billy Ray Cyrus “Achy Breaky Heart”
Martina McBride “My Baby Loves Me”, “Independence Day”
Florida Georgia Line “Cruise”
Kentucky Headhunters “Walk Softly On This Heart of Mine”, “Dumas Walker”

Listen in as Jerry and I discuss…

  • How to determine which song should end up on the radio
  • The easiest way to boost radio airplay
  • How live performance and radio airplay are connected
  • If music videos help radio airplay
  • Why the lifespan of a single by a new independent artist is longer than ever
  • Jerry’s advice for aspiring singers
  • Jerry’s predictions for the future of country music

Our artist Tim Hadler is climbing the charts with the help of Jerry Duncan – check out the video for his single Down By the Railroad Tracks:

Here are a few of Tim’s other original songs, sure to become hits as well…

It takes a team of dedicated and experience radio promoters to get an unsigned artist on the charts. A professional company like Jerry Duncan Promotions is not going to take just anybody’s songs. You must have the best quality production, expertly-crafted songs, and amazing vocal talent.
