I am the CEO of Black Ribbon Records in Nashville and produce 14 artists on my label. Ross Allen is my number one go to promoter. I get daily E-mails from radio stations that Ross serves. Everything is transparent with Ross. He sends your music to radio and you get a response from each station. He is by far the best promoter I have ever used and I highly recommend Ross Allen!
WOW! WOW! Ross, Congratulations yet again for all you do. I have been speaking to many CM presenters recently and they often ask how I became associated with you, and what a brilliant partnership it has become for us both. You have a great reputation here in Australia, and I for one, will keep spreading the news. We'll crack the celebration champagne here for you tonight! much love, Clelia

Hi Ross ...
I just want to say it is always a pleasure working with you. Your advice and honesty is always the best that you can give. You are a "Straight Shooter" a quote my Dad always used!
Lets keep it going Ross ...

Since I began my recording career in 1993 I have used 4 different distribution services to promote my music to international country radio. Without a doubt Hillcrest was and is the cream of the crop! Ross Allen goes out of his way to make certain artists are informed throughout the release process. And Hillcrest is the ONLY service that provides actual feedback direct from the DJ's., including their contact information so we, the artist, can follow up. No other radio marketing service does that for you. Hillcrest, SIMPLY THE BEST!!
Thank you Ross for all you do...

G'day Ross ....
Honestly where do you find the talent?
In my opinion your compilations leave all the others for dead! Keep up the good work Ross 'cos we down under appreciate good indie country music.

As you know we have and always will promote Hillcrest which Smoky and I have done for many years. Hillcrest is the best Overseas promotional company for any artist to be on because of the high quality. Our recommendation to the artists is highly regarded. We know that all the Australian artists who are on your disc's are happy to be there. Keep up the good work you do with your company Worldwide.

Thanks to Ross Allen and Hillcrest ...
It is incredible to be on the world map even though we are only a small piece of the universe. Thanks to Hillcrest, the media here on the island and elsewhere seems to have a huge interest in my music now! We are currently planning a tour which will cover most of Northern Europe. I am eternally grateful for everything you have done for me Ross, and I thank you with all my heart.
Bless you my friend,

Although I never have enough time to keep in touch with all the artists and providers of country music, I always appreciate and I especially like your Hillcrest product because of its very high quality plus most of the songs fit in with my program. Most of your artists absolutely can compete with major label artists. Plus I like your CD's since they introduce interesting artists from all over the world.
