Frequently Asked Questions About Artists

  • Q. 
    Are music videos available for sale?
  • A. 
    The only way to purchase music videos is if the record label or an independent company distributes them for home sale. Most music videos are made for promotional use only and are not available for sale. The record labels hold all rights to the videos. Sometimes artists release video compilations. You can find these at major record stores and large video outlets.
  • Q. 
    Where can I get info on my favorite artist?
  • A. 
    In the Artists area on CMT.com, look for our "Artist Search." The artist's page will have their bio, albums, video clips, audio clips and more. If you need more information, try the artist's official Web site.
  • Q. 
    How can I get in touch with my favorite artist?
  • A. 
    We don't have access to personal e-mail addresses, telephone numbers or home addresses. The best way to contact your favorite artists is via their fan clubs or their record labels, and some artists maintain official Web sites. For fan club information, you can try contacting their record label -- which should be listed on their most recent album --- or contact the International Fan Club Organization (IFCO), P.O. Box 40328, Nashville, TN 37204.

  • Q. 
    Can I buy concert tickets on CMT.com?

  • Q. 
    When will a particular CD be released?

  • Q. 
    Why haven't certain artists been added to your database?
  • A. 
    As we build our artist database, our first priority is to artists who:
    1. are currently signed to a major label or have an independent product on the charts;
    2. are members of the Grand Ole Opry or Country Music Hall of Fame;
    3. have achieved significant chart activity with Billboard, Cashbox, R&R, etc.;
    4. have won awards with CMA, ACM, TNN/Country Weekly, etc., or
    5. have had an impact on the history of country music.

    We have many historical figures who haven't been introduced to the site, and they are our top priority.

    We receive information on artist touring schedules from their record labels and booking agencies.
  • Q. 
    How can I book a country music artist to play at my event?

  • Q. 
    Where can I find out about fan clubs for my favorite artist?
  • A. 
    You can try contacting the artist's record label -- which should be listed on their most recent album -- or contact the International Fan Club Organization (IFCO), PO Box 40328, Nashville, Tenn. 37204. Be sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
