Want to stay updated on all of your favorite country music artists? Well now you can with the new CMT Artists app.
According to CMT, the new application became available for the iPhone on Feb. 20. If you want to check out the latest music video from your favorite artist or look at a singer’s touring schedule, this application is the place to go.
The application also has many other features, such as interviews, news, and social media outlets that lead back to your favorite artist. As USA Today notes, the app is free and allows musicians to connect with their fans as well on a new level.
"For me, personally just getting into the whole process of being an artist, it's really cool because it has a lot of abilities to look up lyrics to songs and learn a lot more about other artists," Danielle Bradbery, winner of fourth season of The Voice, said.
In addition, the app has a feature called "Top 10 songs in 90 seconds," which gives fans a quick roll-call of the artist’s repertoire. You are able to look for songs by using lyrics or with a feature called Sound ID, which is similar to the app Shazam.
"It's all about music discovery and above all of really building that connection directly from fans to artists and putting the power in the hands of artists to control their presence and populate their experience inside of the app," says Shannon Connolly, senior vice president of music strategy for Viacom Music & Logo Group.
Be sure to go to the App Store and download the free app now to see other features for fans.
