People in Charleston may be huge fans of Crowfield — after all, City Paper readers selected the Americana rock group as its 2012 Rock Band of the Year — so it’s only natural that they’d want to help the band get on national television, right?

The band is currently a part of the RipTide Music Pitch Session contest. Six acts will get the chance to make a pitch to Samuel Diaz, CBS’ music supervisor. That means their music can end up on one of three primetime programs: NCIS, The Good Wife, or Blue Bloods.

While five bands will be chosen by industry experts, a sixth will move ahead because of “People’s Choice.” Currently, Crowfield is at the top of that list, after getting a big shoutout from Hootie and the Blowfish, and we’d like to help keep them there.

“Well, there’s a lot of voting to be done and a lot of time left but we’re pretty honored to see our fans have rallied us to the top,” frontman Tyler Mechem says. “It’s exciting to have a chance at this, so thank you for your support.”

The competition ends on Dec. 19, so get over to the website and put in your vote immediately.

Stay cool. Support City Paper.
