The fine folks at AccuRadio mined their data and calculated the total plays each province gave Nickelback in the last month, and, as it turns out, Canadians and Americans love their Nickelback. A LOT.

Nickelback proponents have plenty of evidence to point to that suggests that the band is more popular than outsiders may guess. Nickelback is one of the most commercially successful Canadian groups, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, and in 2006, Nickelback received the World Music Award for World’s Best Selling Rock Artist, beating out some other rock bands like Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Coldplay. Nickelback has released 35 singles worldwide, 22 of which have made a top-10 chart in the United States.

In the US, Nickelback can find their most ardent fans in Nevada. Las Vegas has welcomed Canadian talents such as Shania Twain and Celine Dion with open arms in the past; now, Nickelback joins their ranks. Wyoming residents are the second-biggest lovers of Nickelback, followed by Alaska, Idaho, and West Virginia. Fort Wayne, Indiana, boasts the third-highest concentration of Nickelback fans, and in 2014, South Dakota performed more searches for Nickelback than any other state (interestingly, however, North Dakota tops South Dakota in Nickelback fandom, coming in at eighth on their list).

Online Radio Reach & Consumption, 2008-2015 [CHART]

Some 44% of Americans aged 12 and up listen to online radio on a weekly basis, up from 36% last year and 33% the year prior, according to the latest annual “Infinite Dial” report from Edison Research and Triton Digital. Moreover, the percentage of survey respondents listening to online radio (defined as listening to AM/FM radio stations online and/or listening to streamed audio content available only on the internet) on a monthly basis cracked the majority threshold for the first time, reaching 53% of the 12+ population, up from 47% last year.

No surprise, then, that a recent report from the Radio Advertising Bureau found optimism surrounding radio’s digital ad sales growth, expected to be in the double-digit range again this year.

From CityLab:

“City of New Orleans” isn’t a song about New Orleans. It’s a song about a train called the City of New Orleans. Willie Nelson didn’t write it. But he made it a Grammy Award-winning hit in 1984.

Looking back, it’s easy to see how Willie Nelson came to it. Over the course of his career—a five-decade ramblin’ run that spans recordings as far back as 1962 and as recent as last year—Willie has written endlessly about his affection for (and occasional vexation with) cities across the land.

These are all of those places. Well, a whole hell of a lot of them, anyway.
