The First "Airplay Monitored" All Internet Radio Chart For Texas
The Texas Internet Radio Chart was designed for the Texas Music Scene & Artists tied to the Texas Music Scene. We would love to be able to welcome everyone to our chart but that is not realistic. We want to be as fair as we possibly can and of course work with as many Artists & Promoters as possible. Therefore, we have come up with a few simple requirements for chart eligibility.
1.) Artist must reside & actively perform in the State of Texas. The exception(s) are Artists born in Texas (that may have moved to another state), or an Artist who performs 1/3 of their annual shows in the state of Texas. Your spins will not be reported to the chart if you do not meet these requirements.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we will be a little more relaxed on this but we do reserve the right to ask a promoter or artist for documentation proving eligibility. We really want to keep our focus on Artist working the Texas Music Scene.
2.) Your single (or the single you are promoting) MUST be radio ready and radio quality.
3.) As of 09/01/2020 Your single MUST be released and available on Spotify AND iTunes/Apple Music. Your song will not be reported if this condition is not met.
4.) Artists living in states bordering Texas (OK, LA, AR, CO, & NM) will be considered for eligibility as long as they are using a Texas Radio Promoter and actively working the Texas Scene. They are also strongly encouraged to be working toward 1/3 of their annual shows to be in Texas. In addition, they are to help our Texas Musicians network for opportunities in their home state as well.

We are focused on reporting CURRENT singles and want our chart focused on new music. Therefore, we will no longer report your song to TIRC after 24 weeks. After 24 weeks your song will go into RECURRENT STATUS. We have a formula in our database that starts counting weeks from the first time a song is reported in our database.
The YouTube Top 25 Monthly Chart follows the same methodology aforementioned.
