Adam Lambert is on the Radio

by on Mar.30, 2009, under All About Adam


So if you were wondering if Adam Lambert has what it takes to make it as a recording artist, I’d say he’s well on his way! Adam’s “Tracks of my Tears” is hitting radio air waves all over the country. In just the last few days, since Adam’s performance on American Idol, “Tracks of my Tears” has had an impressive 28 spins!

Adam sees action on the Idol airplay chart
“The highest debut on our Idol Airplay chart this week goes to Adam Lambert’s The Tracks of My Tears, which saw 28 spins on 24 stations in six different formats (including country!). Now, 28 spins may not seem like a lot, but it’s the most by far for any American Idol contestant this season, and I don’t remember any Season 7 finalist getting more than 7 or 8 spins while Idol was on last year. I’m just guessing, but you might have to go back to Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatt’s performance of Bless the Broken Road to see spins like that from a contestant during the show’s run.” By Brian Mansfield, Idol Chatter, USA Today

Here’s the breakdown from the Mediabase report for Idol’s Motown theme week:

Adam Lambert – “Tracks of My Tears” – 28 total spins
10 Top 40
8 Hot AC
4 AC
3 Canada-Main AC
2 Rock
1 Country

Think all this buzz is simply radio stations covering the American Idol show? Possibly, but when Adam Lambert is getting 28 spins out of a total 33 spins for all Top 10 contestants combined… five of them getting no spins at all… we might as well say we’re watching The Adam Lambert Show.
