Brad Davis on American Idol?

Brad Davis, good friend and occasional contributor to Bluegrass Today, has a song featured on the American Idol web site. They have created an offshoot site called American Idol Underground to promote independent artists. A wide variety of genres are included on the site, which also features a number of stylistically-themed online radio stations.

We got a note on Friday from Brad’s management that one of his songs had been entered in an online contest on the new site, with fan voting determining the winner, much like on the TV show.

We have entered Brad Davis’ song “Cypress Walls” in a song competition on American Idol Underground. The way to increase his chance of winning is if his fans go on-line and both nominate his song for the “Big Push 2” contest and rate his song high (a 5 on a scale from 1 to 5).

So if you’d like to help Brad out with this, here is what to do:

Go to Brad’s profile page and look to the far right under “nominate for big push 2.” If you will click that link and create a (free) listener account for yourself, you can nominate Brad. No cost, no big deal.

That’s it! You can also join Brad’s Fan Club on this site, or email the song to others.

Independent artists/agents can create a free profile on the site, and submit music for airplay on Idol Underground radio.
