NASHVILLE is home to over 600,000 folks. The metropolitan area (13 surrounding counties) total almost 1.9 million people. Most came here as DREAMERS. We at RENEGADE RADIO NASHVILLE came here with a dream in 2011. A dream to create a radio station different from ALL the others. One that would honor the classics and its stars of yesterday while playing the hits of today and those of the dreamers of tomorrow. One that would be global with a potential audience of 7.5 billion, who speak 6,500 different languages and live in 24 different time zones! How could we crack the world of MEGA RADIO CORPORATIONS with their endless $$$$ with savings and a dream.
BUT WAIT!!! Isn't that how every DREAMER (almost 700 per month) comes to town? With savings and a DREAM to be the next biggest star. So we set out to accomplish a small miracle.
After only 6 months in Nashville, we became the FIRST Digital Radio Station in history to be given Music Row Panel Reporting Status. An honor given to very few stations throughout the USA. Reporting status give us the opportunity, along with artists promoters and others to determine the trends of the all important country music charts! We "report" what we play and how often we play it. That official data, along with other Music Row Panel Members determines a songs placement on the charts. To date there has not been another Digital (Internet) Station given this honor in ANY GENRE ANYWHERE!
Fast forward 5 years. Three Disney World Live Broadcasts, four CMA Fest Wild Horse Saloon Live Broadcasts, dozens and dozens of Live shows around town with A listers like Tracy Lawrence, Colt Ford, Reba, The Oakridge Boys, Brad Paisley and so many more have become the norm. A 26 city Truck Stop Tour around the USA, an ALL-STAR Legends Benefit in Dallas for law enforcement and a 4 day Master of Ceremonies stint on the Hardrock Stage at CMA Fest were amazing. In 2013 & 2014 we won the award for BEST RADIO STATION from the INDEPENDENT COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION and this past month nominated for RADIO STATION OF THE YEAR by the INSPIRATIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION. Believe me, all of our blessings cannot be listed here, however, one thing is for sure. DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!
WE PROMISE TO CONTINUALLY ADVOCATE FOR UP AND COMING ARTISTS, INDEPENDENT ARTISTS, CLASSIC COUNTRY MUSIC, TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC AND OVERALL GOOD COUNTRY MUSIC. WE PROMISE TO BE A VOICE FOR VETERANS, TRUCKERS, FARMERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT.
