Music Choice Names Runaway June First #RisingCountry Playlist Act

In a bid to help emerging artists bolster their fan base, Music Choice announced the launch of #RisingCountry, a video playlist highlighting the hottest new country artists and their videos each month On Demand.  The series kicks off Monday, February 13th in the Country Hits folder and will feature BBR Music Group Wheelhouse Records trio Runaway June in the first installment of the series.

“We are thrilled to be chosen for Music Choice’s #RisingCountry Playlist!  Music Choice is such an amazing way to discover new music. We actually watch it all the time when we’re home from the road. We really feel the support for new artists and are so grateful to have been chosen as the first act spotlighted!” said Runaway June.

The #RisingCountry Playlist is a unique opportunity for emerging country artists to be featured on Music Choice On Demand. Each month, Music Choice will highlight one artist to promote the playlist, which will also include other emerging country artist videos handpicked by the Music Choice Country Programming Team.

The first artists and videos featured in the #RisingCountry Playlist include:

  • Runaway June “Lipstick”
  • Chris Janson “Holdin’ Her”
  • Mo Pitney “Everywhere”
