ReverbNation Discover is our brand new radio show on W!ZARD Radio Station, on Friday evenings from 7pm (GMT).
The radio show is the new place to discover fresh new artists, as well as to gain music industry insight and expertise on how to fulfil your music career ambitions – with help from ReverbNation’s platform for new artists and it’s expert insight into all different aspects of the music industry.
One of the artists who legendarily got their start on ReverbNation is Charlie Puth!
Having first gotten mainstream attention from his Wiz Khalifa-collaboration, 'See You Again', Charlie Puth has become a household name for young people all over the world. His rise to fame has seemingly come so quickly that, whilst touring with Shawn Mendes last Summer, single 'Attention' charted higher than Mendes', 'There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back' on Spotify!
However, 2015's 'See You Again' wasn't the start of Charlie Puth's music career - it actually started much earlier, in 2009 when he joined YouTube and, then, in 2011 when he appeared on Ellen's TV show - and the music he uploaded on ReverbNation gave him that kickstart too.
Charlie Puth's second album 'Voice Notes' comes out on May 11th 2018.
On ReverbNation Discover, James Gilmore explained Charlie Puth’s rise to fame and his journey to 'Voice Notes', through his music...

The full line-up for County To Country (known as C2C to you and me) has been announced and there are some pretty cool surprises!
For those not in the know - C2C is the UK’s premier country music festival. It takes over the O2 (in North Greenwich, London) for three days from Friday 9th March to Sunday 11th March with headliners Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, Kacey Musgraves and Little Big Town.
For more information on C2C visit: c2c-countrytocountry.com
As well as the mainstage, there are many other stages at C2C which have just been announced and, with this, comes our moment of utter excitement and hyperactivity.
*Taking deep breaths* Perhaps the act we are most excited for is your friend and ours Danielle Bradbery who is taking to the BBC Radio 2 Stage at the Indigo at the O2.
We probably don’t need to explain quite why we’re excited about this performance – if you have been on our website for more than 30 seconds you should know that we’re big fans of THE Bradbery – but this visit is her first since the release of showstopping album ‘I Don’t Believe We’ve Met’, released last year.
The album spawned future hits including the emotional ‘What Are We Doing’, the “ooh you go girl” ‘Worth It’ as well as ‘Sway’, ‘Potential’, ‘Can’t Stay Mad’, ‘Messy’. ‘Red Wine + White Couch’, ‘Hello Summer’, ‘Human Diary’ and ‘Laying Low’.
Yes, we did just write out the entire track list and called them all ‘future hits’.
Also talking to the Radio 2 Stage is her Big Machine label-mate Delta Rae - if you’re a fan of harmony’s (and, let’s be honest, WHO ISN’T?!) then you’re probably a fan of Delta Rae.

What are you doing at 1.30pm on Friday 9th March?
It’s a rhetorical question because it is with-out any doubt whatsoever that you will be at The O2 in London for Country 2 Country festival – the hottest ticket in town (if you’re image of the “hottest” thing being a truly epic country music festival).
The festival is headlined each day by Faith Hill & Tim McGraw (Friday 9th), Kacey Musgraves (Saturday 10th) and Little Big Town (Sunday 11th) in the O2 Arena - with performances also by the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Old Dominion, Sugarland, Midland and more.

However (and this is a very big HOWEVER), if you can’t make it to the arena, there are loads more ‘things’ (technical term that is) that buddy country music fans can ‘get up to’ (another technical term).
The Town Square (located outside the main entrance to The O2) will be host to market stalls and stands, authentic American food (think: burgers, ribs and vats of grease), signings, meet and greets and a hang-out booth by your favourite label and ours Big Machine!
Also, we don’t want to cause any alarm, but the Town Square is free (yay!)
Where things get even more interesting (if that is even possible, let’s be real) are all of the additional stages accessible to C2C ticketholders or fans with a festival wristband which only costs £10 (the hook up for those tickets are below).
For example, the BBC Radio 2 Stage at the Indigo at The O2 features performances from Danielle Bradbery (*screams of excitement*), Delta Rae, LANCO as well as Morgan Evans, Russell Dickerson, Walker Hayes and more.
