FLIP FLOPS!

The song “Flip Flops” by country music artist Billy Craig turned into the number one requested song on K94 New Country and Your All Time Favorites this weekend.

Playing alongside such big names as Sugerland, Alabama, and Alan Jackson, this new artist and his song “Flip Flops” have the ability to hold-up next to some of the biggest artist’s of our time.

“K94 has a very wide listener base which provides a great test market for the song, which is already showing positive upward momentum. The traction this single is already gaining truly shows that listening audiences from all demographic profiles do respond in a very positive way to this Jimmy Buffet-ish, laid back tune,” said Scott Gordon, long time Music Industry professional and Radio Consultant.

“Flip Flops” presence has grown both on broadcast and internet radio, and Billy has been contacted by some heavy hitters who are interested in licensing some of the music from his current, full-length release, This Side of Somewhere for several new television shows debuting this fall.

Billy Craig Trop Rock’n With DK On Island Time Radio

Trop Rock: Blend Of Rock & COUNTRY Music

Billy Craig went live on air to a worldwide audience Monday night (6/30) with host Dennis “DK” King and his Island Time Radio Show on WWBC-88.3FM/Berea, OH getting an incredible response.

The interview started out with ‘The Good Side of Life” a cut off Billy’s brand new CD, This Side Of Somewhere, “It was a great interview” Billy said “DK Played a few songs off the CD and I was able to unveil a brand new song live on air with my acoustic guitar. I’ll be going into the studio to start the recording of the next CD in the next month or so and it was great to get a new song out to a big audience.

Island Time is a show every Monday of Trop Rock music–a mixture of rock-n-roll and COUNTRY music blended with an island style theme and lyrics. The host regularly features in-studio and phone interviews from Trop Rock artists, local and national so it was a natural to bring Billy onto the show.

DK ended the show playing Billy’s current hit “Flip Flops” which has been getting regular airplay around the country and worldwide.
