Dan Thompson Single “A Day Without Progress” Produced by Nashville Trax, Distributed By Sony… 28 Weeks on Sirius XM. Give A Listen!Posted: April 9, 2017
Dan Thompson’s followup single, A Day Without Progress” has released to radio and is enjoying lots of radio play… April 3rd, 2017 marking 28 straight weeks on Sirius.
In fact, the Nashville Trax produced Dan Thompson album is finished and Dan signed an agreement that even prior to completion, saw the first single Miles And Miles” released and distributed to 242 territories through Sony.
Miles was actually released midstream, about three months ago, before the full album was finished and even prior to the deal with Sony being finalized. It’s absolutely blew up on radio, receiving over 2,000 spins per week on hundreds of stations in Australia and the U.K. (including on the BBC).
Now “Miles and Miles” is starting to gain traction on radio in Dan’s home country of Canada:
CJFN in Peguis, MB – ADD – “Danny Thompson Band has been added to rotation.”
CFBW in Hanover, ON – ADD – “Danny Thompson Band is now in our system.”
“Miles and Miles is being played on a country radio station in Owen sound. One of my drivers heard it twice Saturday while working on his truck!!!!”
CHMM in Mackenzie, BC – ADD – “Danny’s song is now in full rotation.”
Glad to see our hard work and Dan’s investment in doing quality work is paying off!
And here’s the followup single:
Why? Because Dan’s kids love the way the harmonica sounds like a duck quacking in the intro; they want to hear it over and over. Now there’s a scientifically sound method. Why bother with demographic research and test marketing when you have quacking ducks, lol!

Okay, there was more to it than a quacking duck! A Day Without Progress is uptempo, has the “bro country” rap portion near the end (bro country is super popular right now). Plus it’s a “pull ’em out of their seats” dance tune.
