Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 16, 2009
Marco Club Connection has announced its list of the ten most requested and played country dance club songs of 2008.
Club Connection reaches more than 200,000 club patrons each weekend, and extensive 12-week marketing blitzes directly market music to more than two million club goers. Ranging from product distribution to full marketing and promotion initiatives, Club Connection provides full-service dance club promotion campaigns in a powerful niche market.
For the fifth consecutive year, a panel of more than 215 nightclubs and dance instructors throughout the country were surveyed during the last four weeks of 2008 to compile the data.
"This year we had the highest number of clubs participating in our survey ever," says Venue Marketing Specialist Bobbe Morhiser. "It's great to see a mix of new artists like Adam Gregory and The Zac Brown Band on the list along with veterans Alan Jackson and Toby Keith."
The results for the most played country dance club hits for 2008 are as follows:
#1 - Alan Jackson "Good Time" - Jackson's G-O-O-D T-I-M-E was the runaway favorite for 2008, garnering up to three spins a night during the peak of the song's popularity in the summer last year.
#2 - The Zac Brown Band "Chicken Fried" - Interest in this song grew from its initial support in the Southern clubs and spread nationwide within weeks of its release.
#3 - Kid Rock "All Summer Long" - This mash-up of Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" was an instant success on country dance floors.
#4 - Matt Stillwell "Shine" - Stillwell's debut single has remained on club playlists for more than six months as interest in this newcomer continues to grow.
#5 - Toby Keith "She's a Hottie" - Clubs were ecstatic to have a new up-tempo Toby Keith song last spring. The success of this single reserved Keith a spot in the Top Ten Country Dance Songs for the fifth year in a row.
#6 - Lady Antebellum "Love Don't Live Here" - This fresh new act exploded on the dance club scene last February with their unique fusion of country and rock.
#7 - Sugarland "All I Wanna Do" - Jennifer Nettles' catchy vocal hook and pop appeal made this song destined for success in the clubs.
#8 - James Otto "Just Got Started Lovin' You" - Otto struck a chord in club patrons across the country with this soulful breakout hit.
#9 - Adam Gregory "Crazy Days" - Gregory's dance remix of his first U.S. single, "Crazy Days," was used in clubs for a classic line dance called "walk the line."
