1. Tell us a little about DittyTV. 
DittyTV is a television network that celebrates Americana and Roots styles of music. We are based in Memphis, but we broadcast Americana and Roots music to the world.
 
2. What led you to start an Americana Music TV network?
My husband Ronnie and I are both musicians and we also have a background in technology.  We have always wanted be in the music business and the opportunity presented itself to combine our love of music and our tech expertise to start a music television network. We had the idea many years ago, but the technology had to evolve to the point where the average viewer could have a great experience. We also both love the Americana and Roots music genre and felt that there were so many undiscovered artists that we could connect with a new audience. 
 
3. What do you love most about your job? 
I love being able to work with all of the talented established and emerging artists to help promote their music and connect them with new fans. Our hosts on DittyTV provide interesting information about the artists and their music, which really gives depth to their music and their message. If you listen, everyone has such interesting stories to tell and it is such a pleasure getting to know the artists and their PR and management teams.


 
4. Why is DittyTV important to the Memphis music industry?
We see ourselves as ambassadors for Memphis and the region, getting the word out about are area and what a great place it is to visit and experience our musical heritage, past and present. We believe that we are providing a platform for the modern Memphis music industry that continues the long musical tradition here in Memphis and enables us to do our part to demonstrate to the world that the Memphis music industry and great music talent is still thriving here. Memphis is the home of Americana music, from Johnny Cash to Valerie June, and DittyTV is continuing that tradition. We truly believe that if the Memphis music community works together we can be a force for Memphis Music now an in the future.
