R.J. Curtis To Ronnie Dunn: Tell Us How You Really Feel -- And Why
October 17, 2013 at 10:09 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS Country Editor R.J. CURTIS devotes this week's I'm Here All Week ... Try The 'Ville column to veteran Country star RONNIE DUNN, who's been publicly bashing radio for its airplay choices. "You said this about radio in general: '99% of the people at radio are sincere, GOOD people but when 1% control the 99%, we have a BIG problem," he wrote on his FACEBOOK page.
He later said, "You're about to see a new paradigm rise from the ashes, shortly. The old school cats think it's suicide to buck the system. The system is corrupt."
DUNN's actions have thrown R.J. for a loss. "My takeaway from all of it after watching for a few weeks is this: I don't know what to take away," CURTIS writes. "One of the dangers of social media is that we can't read tone. Are you mad? Sarcastic? Bitter? Are you punking all of us and we simply can't see it?
"I don't know those answers but I do know this: What you see as being salient, relevant and important points are being heard as scattered, random and venomous."
While R.J. awaits to see if DUNN will respond to his questions -- and his offer -- you can read the entire column here.
