CBC Searchlight : Surf on over and vote for "Couch Surfin"

With the debut album from the Foley Mountain Playboys coming out this spring, we thought we'd throw our hat into the ring for this year's CBC Music Searchlight competition, to hopefully create some advance buzz about the album.

I don't think there is a hope in hell a country song will win this contest, but I hope you guys will prove me wrong, because it would be an outstanding thing! It would give recognition to a whole scene that is largely ignored by the CBC, or any other radio for that matter, with the exception of  community and university radio, and stations like CKUA in Alberta. And no, I am not talking about Pop-Country. That genre is well represented in the mainstream.

It seems like everyone in Canada and their dog is in this contest, so we won't be inundating you with "vote for us" posts, but we would appreciate your support. Apparently you can vote up to 10 times a day,  so if you're into it, vote a bunch! Sharing this very blog post would be helpful as well.

To the other bands competing in the contest, if you vote for us, we will vote for you. Just tweet to us @FMPlayboys with your links (after you vote for us), or post them on the Tom Savage Music Facebook page,  and we will head on over and vote for you. A little mutually beneficial promotion never hurt anyone.
