Picking the best songs

How it works: The songs which appear on Music City Top 40 have been recommended by Nashville music fans and artists, and are not based on radio play or itunes sales. Many of the artists are unsigned or undersigned and don’t have massive marketing budgets. Most of the songs are by artists who live in Nashville, TN; and they were recorded in the last year or so.

If you dig a song, “click the pick.” Many of the songs are available on itunes, so if you dig it, please invest in the artist by buying a copy. The Top 40 songs appear in random order through March 31 each year, and will then be ranked based on the final number of “picks.” So if you dig a song, click the pick. Every click counts.
