Country radio will soon be welcoming Dee Jay Silver as a regular on the airwaves with his new syndicated show “The Country Club with Dee Jay Silver”. The RCA recording artist and mixer will use the show as a place to feature country hits and newcomers, all infused with his signature rhythms and samples from other genres.
The tone will be uptempo and modern, providing one to five hours of remixes and mash-ups. “Dee Jay Silver is a star. He’s built a very unique brand. Creating a radio show makes perfect sense. Silver will be ratings gold. We’re going to have a blast!” said Keith Kaufman who is producing and programming the show. Compass Media Networks will provide the syndication.
“I love radio!” Silver said. “Although my schedule is very hectic and I’m always on the road, whenever I’m on the radio, it feels like home. This is going to be tons of fun!”
Sounds like it, Dee Jay. We’re all looking forward to this!

Rascal Flatts has released their new single, “Banjo,” from their upcoming album set to drop this spring. The song will officially impact country radio on January 17th.
Jay DeMarcus describes the song as:
“a sentiment about getting away from it all, getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and sort of breaking out and finding a spot way out in the country and drivin’ and drivin’ and drivin’ until you go so far you start to hear a banjo.”
You can listen to the song on the Flatts’ official website: http://www.rascalflatts.com/videos.
