Nashville (PRWEB) February 28, 2006
Is country radio punishing the classics, or just Martina McBride? That’s the question McBride fans have been asking as newcomer Eileen Carey appears to get more airtime for her version of “Walkin’ After Midnight” than McBride has since her crossover success.
Indy artist Eileen Carey's energetic new cover of Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight" has been popular on the secondary radio market since her debut on Blair Garner’s syndicated “After MidNite” Country Radio show.
Now the established country diva, Martina, seems to be sharing her fans with Eileen. And maybe air time. McBride’s fans have noticed that “Walkin’ After Midnight” seems to be attracting more playtime than McBride’s “I Still Miss You” her second single off or McBride’s new CD.
“I’m just thrilled to be mentioned on Martina’s fansite. But it’s even better to know that her fans are enjoying my music,” said Eileen.
McBride fans aren’t the only ones enjoying Eileen’s music. “Walkin’ After Midnight” was highly rated by fans in a contest on `After MidNite,' which airs on stations in major and medium markets all across the United States.
Reflecting on that success, Carey said: “To be the only independent artist on the same list with major-label artists, and having your song picked by the fans - what more could you ask for!"
Back home in California, the title song of Eileen’s current "Hearts Of Time" album received a nomination for Best Country Song at the Southern California Music Awards.
