TLC is made up of Lance Shirley-lead vocals, Chad Shirley-acoustic guitar & vocals, Bobby Roberts Jr-saxophone, Shane Rogers-bass guitar and Drip McCullough-drums. Brand new to MMR, they’ve already made a name for themselves, making their debut to the countdown last week at #5 and ruling the roost this week at #1! We can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for them!
JT HAYDEN was Rick’s Pick Of The Week on September 4th and has been in the countdown ever since, spending four weeks in the Top 10 and coming in at #6 this week with “Big Time Country Star”, which happens to feature background vocals by The Don of Music Mafia Radio!
Another new MMR family member blasting their way up the Top 30 is FALLING INTO RED. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA their fans rallied & brought the amazing song “The Storm Inside” from #30 last week to #8 this week!
