Week 7: Double Dipping
Nobody said it couldn't be done
NEW YORK, NY Friday Aug.18.2006 /FantasyMusicLeague.com/ -- Don't look now but Rascal Flatts is double dipping on the Country eTracks with hits in position 2 and 16. It's not completely unseen, but they have hit songs from two different albums allowing them to earn revenue for both positions. At least Gnarls Barkley and Nelly Furtado (our top revenue earners this week) haven't spread their success onto the Country eTracks.
In our Open League standings Amarpan still maintains a slight lead over Stevemoose. Daldog is our double dipper in the top 10 labels with labels in position 3 and 5. With the Platinum Awards being issued next week we typically see a mixup in the standings. Review your roster for low (or no) performing artists and seriously think about trading them for more productive artists.
Debuting artists Carolina Rain and Hinder will have to compete with a pretty tough crowd this season. They both arrived on the eTracks in position 20 on the Country and Alternative charts respectively. Visit the FML Artist Bio page to check them out and find links to their music downloads.
Ever play 'Guess the band'? It's a little game I play on the FML website each week. Here are the rules. On the homepage there are 10 artist icons from bands that are on this week's eTracks. What you do is guess the name of the band based on the artist icon, then mouse over the icon to reveal the band's name. See how many you can get right. More than 7 out of 10, then you've got me beat.
