Entering its third season on Public Television, Road Trip Production's (RTP) Road Trip Nation showcases
the summer journeys of college-age individuals taking a road trip across America seeking words of wisdom from individuals who have defined their own lives. Traveling in a big green RV they sit down to hear the personal stories of how people like the founder of Starbucks, founder of Volcom, Nic Harcourt from KCRW, director of Saturday Night Live, or the real life Jerry McGuire followed their our roads to get where they are today. Check out the promo for the new series here.

Music has always played a key role in the films of RTP and this year will be no exception. RTP is looking for music for 12 new episodes. RTP is committed to supporting independent artists by exposing their music to wider audiences and showcasing it on the RTP website.

Selected artists will be financially compensated for airplay on PBS through the Performing Rights Organization of choice (ASCAP, BMI, etc) and paid a royalty on each DVD sold. Of course, the exposure this opportunity provides is also invaluable.

Road Trip Nation’s first edits are in early February, so the sooner you submit your music, the better!

All genres accepted. No explicit lyrics please.

"Driving along a road in the middle of nowhere America is amazing. Add to that a larger context of an eye-opening, life-changing road trip and it just became 10 times better. Add a CD player in the RV, and this is absolute euphoria. There's no better way to define an experience than to add a soundtrack."

-Randy, participant in the 2004 Roadtrip
