TMP Input Committee

When we do lists, competitions, awards etc…, we will rely on the input of this group.  We are seeking passionate and knowledgable Texas/Red Dirt fans and industry professionals who would like to give feedback, rank, submit and or score contestants, submissions, albums, songs etc…

What this committee is: a way to garner unbiased feedback from a group of consumers and industry folks that reflects the opinions of the Texas/Red Dirt populous.  We often have lists, awards, contests etc…with a limited number of spots and while we sometimes reach out to folks outside our TMP team to help us when things get close, having a dedicated group like this, will ensure even more accuracy in the decision process. 
What this committee is not: a way to sway the scoring in favor of an artist someone is friends with, related to, or represent.  This is not something for artists to tell their fan bases to sign up for so it can help them and I plan to put some measures in place to ensure that. 
Our main goals are to ensure everyone is acting with integrity and transparency, that everyone is at least somewhat knowledgeable and informed on the Texas/Red Dirt scene, and providing unbiased feedback that can used as a general consensus for making decisions in regards to Texas/Red Dirt artists and music. Since we’ve launched this, we’ve already have a solid group of fans, booking agents, radio promoters, radio PD’s, talent buyers, artist managers, and festival organizers sign up (kind of blown away really), and we’re excited as all the things we can use this committee for going forward!  If we have a solid group of folks and are able to maintain integrity in the process, I think it could have some pretty cool implications going forward — and if TMP is doing our job correctly, a unique way to discover some new artists and music. 

When we need the input of the committee, we’ll send out links to videos, songs, albums etc…and a scoring, feedback, or ranking sheet, as well as a deadline.  You are not required to participate on every send out, but you are expected to contribute on at least a somewhat consistent basis. If you’d like to be apart of the committee fill out the form below. 

*Filling out the form does not guarantee admittance on to committee.  Each application will be reviewed by the TMP team to determine if the applicant meets the qualifications. Eligibility to participate may be subject to a waiting period, if the application is submitted during a list, award process, competition etc…
