Rounder Records recording artists, The Lonely Heartstring Band absolutely brought the house down during their performance at Music City Roots last night.

"This band truly is a 'living' work of art in constant motion and relevant evolution," stated Robert Weingartz, Chairman - AirPlay Direct / Collective Evolution. "Personally, for me, beyond their art this is a group of talented musicians that obviously care about every aspect of their music careers... most importantly their growing global fanbase. They are also very fortunate to have a fantastic group of industry professionals surrounding and supporting them. This is the 'business of music' at work and in action in 2017."

The Lonely Heartstring Band inked an Artist Endorsement Deal with AirPlay Direct in mid-2016. Since signing with AirPlay Direct, their success at global radio has increased tremendously. Currently, they own the #21 spot on the AirPlay Direct “Top 50 All-Time” Americana / AAA Album Chart. Needless to say, they are sitting in very good company.

Ashley Moyer, Publicity Manager - Rounder Records says, “It was such a thrill to have Robert and Lynda out to see the band play live for the first time last night. Their enthusiasm for The Lonely Heartstring Band is evident with all of the hard work they put in to helping us promote their music to the AirPlay Direct audience. We couldn’t ask for better partners to help us bring The Lonely Heartstring Band the recognition they deserve.”
