That would make four singles released from one album. I'm no radio industry expert (but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express once! :wink: ). I'd say it's not very likely, although it's one of my faves off that album.

They can play it without an official add all they want. The P.D. may just like the song or the station may be getting ready to do an island trip promotion.
Look I'm a little slow today, I just switched to Sanka, so have a heart.

It's not uncommon for a PD to add a song that they really like evein if it hasn't been released officially. But it's also not uncommon for four (and sometimes five) singles to be released from an album in country music. Brad Paisley's "Mud on the Tires" has had four releases off of it, and Keith Urban's last album "Golden Road" had five songs off of it released to radio. A lot of artists used to only release one or two singles from an album, but Shania Twain changed that in the mid nineties. "The Woman in Me," in the mid nineties released seven singles to radio, redefining how people thought about radio releases.

I wish they were playing that in Colmbus, OH. But, on the classic rock station I have heard Margaritaville the last two days. That is pretty unusual for this time of year up here (even though it is 60 degrees at 9am here today), the only times we get to hear JB that often is when he is coming to town or it is July. So, lets hope they are only a couple weeks away from announcing when he is coming to town!

Heard M'ville last week too. and yes, it seems like the only song Jimmy ever had was that, at least according to 105.7

Just curious....is this a country station playing it? That song has very little country sound to it....and I didn't think it would ever show up on that format?

No it's not. It's about a hundred miles from Astoria, upriver from the mouth of the Columbia. County seat of Multinomah Co., across the river from Vancouver, the county seat of Clark Co.


buwahahahahahahahaha
