We caught up with Bette Foord over the last couple of weeks to talk about her success on Atomic, the importance of fan support, her upcoming shows and more.
Today (May 7) was a big day for you, you scored your first No. 1 song on Atomic, tell us all about that moment.
Yes! Holy shit! Haha I’m beyond happy. I’m completely over the moon. A goal of mine, earlier in the year, was to get in the top 5, and then the top 3. I hoped & dreamed but never exprcted to get number 1! It’s just…ah, a dream come true! Truly. I can’t thank my supporters, enough.
You ended up having six of the songs that made up the Top 20, did you feel like one of The Beatles with such success?
Hahaha I think if I agreed to that, Ringo & Paul would kick my arse haha. I felt incredibly lucky & very supported.
How important is it for your family and fans to come to Atomic and sign up to give your songs a listen, a like, a repost and hopefully make a purchase or two as well?
As it’s important to me – I hope it’s important to them, too! They always support me and I really appreciate it. It makes me so happy when someone tells me they’re listening/buying my songs on Atomic.
Every week you inch closer towards getting the Radium award from Atomic, what would it feel like to be awarded one in the future?
O my gosh, I would just be over the moon. The fact that even one person enjoys my music makes me happy but to get so much support to reach RADIUM!? Oof, I think I’d pass out with happiness haha.
You’ve got a busy month ahead of you with a stack of shows to perform including ones where you are performing for a good cause, tell us all about them
Yes, I do! I’m “Going Pink” all June for National Breast Cancer Foundation to raise funds and awareness of Breast Cancer. I’m performing at a few venues around Melbourne and some virtual gigs (in my vintage pink nightgowns which perfectly match my pink hair! Haha). I actually originally dyed my hair pink a few years ago when I first fundraised for NBCF when my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. Mum is doing well & is also a musician so it seemed only fitting to fundraise by performing considering mum is a performer, too!
Check out Bette’s NBCF page below for more information on her upcoming fundraising performances and you can make a donationthere too.

We taken a look at Cassidy-Rae Wilson’s music videos back in November 2021 to see how they were going.
Now we’re in March 2022 and we’re taking a look at how well they are going with the Top 6 again based on view totals with the list going from No. 1 to No. 6 followed by a look at “Amazing” which is the most recent music video.
No. 1 is “Cheers Y’all” and this song delivered Cassidy-Rae her second 100,000+ view video, this music video is unique as it does have fan participation in it, a lot of fan participation as you will see.
This music video was 93 views away from the 106,000 views range and it has made it there and now sits at 106,314.
“More” was the first Cassidy-Rae music video to reach 100,000 views and this song is considered to be beautiful as the word was used seventeen times in YouTube comments.
Last time we checked it was 102 views away from reaching 103,000 views and it has reached that mark and sits at 103,031 views to comfortably sit at No. 2.
“Just Smile” came along in November 2015 and it has 86,529 views at this present time so it has less than 15,000 to go to reach 100,000 views.
“Just Smile” has the second highest amount of Thumbs Up ratings out of the six music videos shown today.
Smiling is considered contagious so if you need to be cheered up, this music video may do that for you.
“I’m On Vacation” was a 2020 release and this music video tells the story of office life and that vacation is just a doorway away from happening and in Cassidy-Rae’s case it did happen.
The song currently has 75,121 views at this time of writing so it has passed three quarters of the way to entering triple figures and now all that is left is the climb to 100,000.
“Dose Of You” comes in at No. 5 in the Top 6 with a current total of 60,885 views.
This video is known for its twist at the end, if you haven’t seen it before Cassidy-Rae is waiting for someone to come but is it the person or what that person has that Cassidy-Rae wants? Check it out.
Coming in at No. 6 is “Meant To Be” and this one has 58,989 views so it should cross into the 59,000 range within days.
This video out of the six has the highest total of Thumbs Up ratings with six hundred and forty-three.
Most recent music video “Amazing” has just over 32,000 views and it premiered on February 19 2022 so it is most likely still making its way to Cassidy’s many fans and should make it into the Top 6 in the near future.
We’ll check back in three to six months to see if the Top 6 has changed.
On the outside looking in is The Garden, Wear A Mask and “Dirty Talk” but they come back next week depending on the level of fan support and the generally curious who click on the links to give the songs a play.
Bette got to experience her songs being played on Atomic earlier this week and the experience was recorded on Instagram and you could so clearly see Bette’s delight as she hears her songs being introduced and played to people online and in four Australian states.
AMA will continue to report on Bette’s music news as it comes to hand.
Cherelle this week has released her latest single titled “Without You”.

Listeners of Atomic can hear the songs at least twice a day as the Countdown is replayed at 5pm and 10pm ADST plus all of the songs are on Atomic’s rotation of music so you never know how many times you’ll get Bette’s songs.
There is one more Countdown edition before the end of the year and then all roads lead to 2022 and eventually the Atomic 100 in the last quarter of the year where Bette can end up on if the support continues the way it has so far.
AMA will continue to report on Bette’s music news as it comes to hand.

December is well and truly here and we should always have some cheer during this month to away with the stresses of getting the perfect Christmas lunch and the right presents.
The good news is that Cherelle has brought some Christmas cheer by releasing “Dear Santa“.
“Dear Santa” has also been released on Atomic and her efforts have been rewarded with the song entering the Atomic Countdown chart at No. 15.
Cherelle has had great times on the Atomic Countdown with her 2021 efforts being rewarded with three entries in the Atomic 100 that celebrated the one hundred most popular songs on Atomic over the course of the year.
Fans and the generally curious can help Cherelle out and get some good music in at the same time for themselves by just clicking on the “Dear Santa” link at the beginning of this piece and playing the song just the once (plus more for your own enjoyment), doing this will help propel the song up the Atomic Countdown chart.
AMA will continue to report on Cherelle’s news as it comes to hand.
Bette Foord has made it on to the Atomic Countdown chart with two songs making it on to the Independent chart that showcases the Top 20 songs on Atomic.
“Dirty Talk” is the lead song with the song hitting No. 6 on the chart and right behind it is “The Garden” that occupies No. 7.
Having two songs on the chart is fantastic for Bette and there’s every chance that those songs will climb up higher the order and perhaps her other songs will join the Atomic Countdown party in the near future.
You can listen to all seven of Bette’s songs by clicking on the links and pressing play, this action helps Bette as one play of each song from a person gives her a Countdown Point and those points are vital for chart position.
