“ "Find the Stars" is one of the best songs of 2021. After putting "Find the Stars" on the Independent Music Network's syndicated radio shows this inspiring song zoomed up our National Charts to #1 on our Country Top 30. KKUL in Las Vegas and KLDL in LA are currently playing the song in heavy rotation. Terry Bell has a hit on his hands. ” - Debi Fee Executive Producer / Talent
