Fascinated (country) on Canadian Radio and up for a #LennonAward

Maddy_radio_thx_image_Fascinated_April_2015Hey there fanily, I'm not great at blogging. I love Instagram though. Follow me there by the way at @maddyrodriguezmusic (https://instagram.com/maddyrodriguezmusic) :)

Having said that, I thought I'd write this quick blog post to thank all the radio stations in Canada that have added my song Fascinated to their playlists and rotation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! It's no secret in the music industry that it's very, very hard to get songs on the radio, no matter how good the songs are, if you don't have a label behind it (promotion staff and such). Independents like me hire a radio tracker at our expense to try and get music directors and programmers to listen to the song and consider it for airplay. Thank you Lauren Tutty for your hard work ♥ And the competition is fierce. There's a lot of talent out there who wants to be on the radio. So, anyhow, thank you to all of you lovely MDs and MPs who added the song. I am very proud that Fascinated won the Grand Prize in Section II of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and is now up for a #LennonAward. If I win this phase of the contest, I'll take the country category and go for Song of the Year!!! Wouldn't that be just awesome!!! 

 Thank you:

Saying hello to Mr. Guitar :)

I'm so excited that many people will get to hear Fascinated on country radio in Canada!!! Thank you to CJQC and CICR in Liverpool and Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, CJDL in Tilsonburg, Ontario, and CHMM in Mackenzie, BC for being the first stations to add the song. I cannot it tell you how much it means to me that you guys believe in the song and had a space for it so soon. 

Thank you to CKYC in Owen Sound, Ontario for featuring Fascinated in your "What's New This Week" show. That's awesome!

Thank you Cal Gratton of CIXM in Whitecourt, AB and CJVR in Melfort, SK for featuring the song and for interviewing me. I had a blast!!!

To all the stations in Canada who are considering featuring or playing the song, thank you so much. I am very driven to succeed in the music business and I need all the support I can get. Having said that, I understand it's a tough business (mediabase numbers, etc) and I want you to judge my songs on their merits. Everyone, I've shown Fascinated in Nashville has really liked it!  And it's out just in time for Valentine's Day!!!

Fascinated

words and music by Maddy (Madison) Rodriguez 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

 

Words cannot describe

Just how much I’m

Fascinated by… You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

 

People say you only fall in love once

But I’m not in agreement

Don’t believe it because

Every single time I’m in your presence

I fall in love again and

All over again

 

Oh and I can’t get enough

I wanna study you baby

Oh and I just want some more

 

Can’t get enough of you

Just want some more of you

 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

 

Words cannot describe

Just how much I’m

Fascinated by… You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu You-ou-ou-ou-ouuuuu

 

You’re already standing right beside me

But come a little closer

I wanna feel the way you breathe

 

Oh and I can’t get enough

Can’t get enough of you

I wanna study you baby

Oh and I just want some more

Just want some more of you

 

Cuz You don’t know how long I’ve waited

To be fascinated

By someone like you

This is more than just a crush now

More than just in love now

This is something new

Words cannot describe

Just how much I’m

Fascinated by…

 

You don’t know how long I’ve waited

Fascinated (Country)

Who fascinates you? Fascinated (country) goes to Canadian Country Radio

Who Fascinates you?Fascinated (Country)

I'm very excited that Fascinated is going to radio. I'm too young to have children, but I think it feels a little like when your kid goes to school and it's her first day. I hope the kids at radio treat her well.  So far so good. According to the Canada Country Aircheck newsletter, Fascinated has been in the Top 5 DMDS downloads this week. For those of you who don't know, DMDS is the system that labels and indies use to send their songs to radio.  Keep your ears open for Fascinated on your local country station while your driving or wherever you listen. If you hear the song, let me know so I can thank that station. If your station has request hours, please request the song (if you like it, of course - I know my music is not for everyone, but hopefully you like ti). Hit me up on Facebook or tweet me @maddyrodriguez  I would love to hear from you. Also, if you want, you can play the song on Spotify or get it on iTunes

AND REMEMBER VALENTINE"S DAY is COMING. You can gift/send/share Fascinated different versions when my Fascinated EP comes out February 1st!!! xoxo I dare you to send it to that secret (or not so secret) crush. You know you have one. Lol.

xoxo Maddy
