JT Hodges announced this morning through a special video message to his fans that they will pick his next single

The Show Dog- Universal Music recording artist will open the polls on his Facebook page today (July 2) and voting will continue throughout the month of July, with three songs offered up for the fans to consider. Approximately two weeks before the street date of his debut, self-titled CD (out August 21, 2012), the label will announce the fans’ choice and release the new single to radio. Fans may sample the songs and cast their vote here:

The Facebook poll will feature these three titles, two of which were co-written by Hodges.  In fact, the artist wrote eight of the CD’s 10 tracks.
* “Sleepy Little Town”
* “Leaving Me Later”
* “Rather Be Wrong Than Lonely”

“JT’s fan base is one of the most active I have seen for a new artist,” said SDU VP — Sales, Marketing and New Media Bill Kennedy. “They have already purchased more than 130,000 downloads of his two singles and we at the label thought it would be a smart idea to let these people who really get him and his music weigh in on the next single.”

In addition to a very active presence on his vibrant social media sites, Hodges also takes his music straight to the people through a busy touring schedule.  Leading into launch week of his debut, self-titled CD, Hodges will spend most of his time on the road.
