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 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.
*** 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 . Your song will not be reported if this condition is not met. The Single must be released under each artist and on their official Spotify page.
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.
We are focused on reporting the most accurate information that we can. In full disclosure please be advised we have a 3 spin minimum on reporting to our monitoring system at this time. In order to not flood the database with songs not receiving more than 3 spins per week on any given station. To clarify, songs with 3 spins or less will not be reported. This is also so we can remain a FREE chart with FREE Spin reports. We do have plans in the future to adjust this policy. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to us.
New Radio Single Submissions.
As of 4/24/21, All new singles must be submitted to our Submission Form for consideration, to be added to our chart. This will allow your single to be fingerprinted and reviewed for ELIGIBILITY .
The Submission Form is located below at the bottom of this page. Please have your radio promoter (or self if self promoting) fill out the form on the bottom of this page. You will need the following information:
Any issues complaints, questions, or concerns should be emailed to our chart director at firstname.lastname@example.org
