Contacting Saving Country Music:
Please understand that Saving Country Music is a one man operation, and I get dozens of emails and requests every day. I read everything that is emailed to me, but I may not always have the opportunity to respond. If I spend my time responding to everything, I wouldn’t have time to write articles. But I will do my best to respond if/when necessary. If something is very important, it never hurts to email twice. I can also be reached through Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
Submission Guidelines for Artists and Bands:
Please understand that Saving Country Music is a one man operation. I try to listen and review as many albums as I possibly can, but unfortunately I cannot get to everything that is submitted. Please note that except for very rare occasions, I do not review EP’s, splits, or singles, only full length albums. I also prefer to review material that has been put out recently, especially in the same calender year as when the album is being submitted. I also give preference to professional, full-time artists, artists that tour nationally or regionally, or that are currently on tour, or have toured in the past. Please take the time to understand the type of music Saving Country Music covers before submitting material. Material can be submitted digitally, but submitting a physical CD usually increases the chances of the album being reviewed. Both an email address and physical address can be obtained by first using the contact forum, and leaving links to your website/Facebook/ReverbNation/MySpace to make sure the material is worth putting through the submission process.
Just because I do not review something submitted does not mean I do not like it, do not like the style of music, or the region the artist is from. Saving Country Music is a non money-making altruistic venture. I do the best I can, try not to play preferences with anyone, and try my best to find the best music to bring to my readers. Also note that even though a submission may not get a full review, I still may play it on Saving Country Music Radio, talk about it on the message board, mention it in the news stream, or on Twitter/Facebook/etc.
