MTS Records would like to congratulate Swedish country rocker, Hicks on his US country airplay chart debut, "Hayride." The British CMA Award Winner's first US radio single charted at #85 on the New Music Weekly Country Internet chart for weekending June 27, 2014. The track was also the 5th most-added at NMW country reporters (AM/FM) this week, ahead of its official release. The official radio and retail release date for "Hayride" is Monday, June 30, 2014 on MTS Records.

Meanwhile, MTS Management Group has three other artists currently charting on the NMW country airplay charts: Marshall Dane "Alcohol Abuse," (#1 on last week's NMW Country Internet chart,) Matt Williams featuring Alyssa Morrissey "Make Love Tonight," and Jiggley Jones' "Walk On Me." This gives MTS four current chart singles, a new benchmark for the label/promo company. The label has also enjoyed four consecutive #1 NMW single releases.

"I would like to sincerely and personally thank country radio for believing in our artists," said Michael Stover, head of MTS. "For that matter, I'd like to thank them all for playing indie artists, as a whole. To have a single like 'Hayride' hit the airplay charts before its even released is just mind-blowing. I think it's a great testament to the standards of our artists, and I want to congratulate Hicks on a very successful start to his US radio career...and thank you country music fans, everywhere, for your requests!"

“Hayride” was co-written by Hicks and Lasse Andersson. The song and video have already received numerous award nominations, including Song of the Year and Video of the Year at the 2014 Nashville Universe Awards and Song of the Year at the 2014 Independent Country Music Association Awards. The video currently boasts approx. 78,000 Youtube views at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX-XX4-WIoc.

His rock-edged songs have been recorded by artists like Jimi Jamison (Survivor), Giant (Dann Huff), Bobby Kimball (Toto), Little River Band, W.E.T.
