If you are reading this, it's because you are special to us and I wanted to let you know about our upcoming radio tour to support our new single, "The Hell Of It". Our last radio tour back in January was a huge success, and brutal to be honest! It was 12 radio spots (several at 8am), 8 gigs, and over 3000 miles in the band van, ALL IN 8 DAYS!!! And NONE of our radio stops were in the town that we gigged in the night before. We didn't touch a drop of alcohol till the very last night, and even then, it was only a couple drinks! The only way we survived was because of our amazing sponsors, Midwest Compressor! Their monetary support allowed us to cover our expenses like fuel and hotels, and not have to worry about sleeping in the van, or sketchy cheap hourly-rate motels. While we did gig every single night of the last radio tour, it was often last minute booking with low pay. BUT....The hard work paid off! Our last single "Looking Back" reached #25 on the Texas Country Music Charts, which is insane for our first song that we used radio promotion for. It's almost unheard of for a brand new act to have their first song peak in the Top 25, according to our friends at radio.
Our new single went out to radio and all digital platforms June 30th, and we have already seen a 10X growth on Spotify! We have been playlisted on editrorial playlists, including The Guardians Of The Galaxy playlist on Spotify, which has already given our new song around 7000 spins.
Here's the Spotify link if you want to check it out!

Now here's the ask.....
We are seeking sponsorships for this radio tour. If you want to support our music, and be a part of growing this thing as big as we can, this is a great way to not only support, but make a huge difference in our lives. We garnered national attention from podcasts, radio promoters, stations, and other artists about our last radio tour, and we plan on making waves with this one as well! If you would like, we post on all relevant social media outlets leading up to, throughout, and at the end of the tour, and would love to list you, your family, or your company as a sponsor.
When it comes down to it, really anything helps, but ultimately, we are trying to raise $3000. This will guarantee us a hotel room every night, fuel to get our band van down the road, a small batch of merch for the tour, and possibly still have enough to cover any thing that comes up, such as blowouts or mechanical issues.
We've put together a bit of a way to say thanks for your support, at any level.
$0-$100 - Signed Poster and surprise merch shipped to you
$101-$500 - A Custom Chad Miller & The Good Fortune T-shirt, along with everything above
$501-$1000 - Door list for you and up to 3 guests (4 Total) to any show of ours of your choosing, along with everything above
$1000+ - a private acoustic performance for you and your guests at the place of your choosing (we can work out logistics). This can be a blast and we can plan it to fit our schedule and yours for a great evening.
If you want to be involved, and have any other ideas, suggestions, or requests, please let me know. I'm so appreciative of your support so far and truthfully my goal is that we make you proud. We're just some boys from Tulia, Texas trying to play music for a living, but with your support, there's no telling how far we can take this, and we are just getting started!
