Established in 2007, Sam Watkins Country (SWC) was created by Sam Watkins with the help of his wife Tina to promote his own musical dreams. Sam began his career as a solo artist and eventually formed the band Sam Watkins and Fate Train.
Since then the company has expanded to include the promotion of musicians from all over the world and their respective genres.
Through In The Neon Spotlight (ITNS) we give our artists much needed exposure and valuable radio promotions, which help them to attain a powerful social media presence. The radio program was created “By Musicians For Musicians". SWC understands that music is your passion, and would like to help you foster that passion and influence countless others through your music!
Figure out what song or songs you'd like to submit. ITNS radio plays almost every genre you can think of, so don't be shy with your choice!
Make sure the songs you've chosen are in the MP3/MP4/WAV formats.
Be sure they are also named: BandName_SongTitle to avoid confusion.
Send an email with the properly formatted song or songs to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
