Re: Clear Channel/Carrie

I am so sick of the manufactured pop drivel crammed down our throats by the conglomerate monopoly Clear Channel Radio/American Idol machine I can't even listen to the radio anymore. The reason no-one buys records anymore is because the public is force-fed a steady diet of soulless, 1-dimensional, 1...

Re: Clear Channel/Carrie

Carrie is on the very thin line of pop and country. She's marketable in country because she is an Okie, very pretty, and has a very down home feel about her. I also feel the same about Rascal Flatts. They're "country" but not really country to me. Miranda Lambert, Chris Young, Josh Turner and a few ...

Re: Cumulus Broadcasting

I worked for Cumulus starting out 10 years ago. Haven't had much dealing with them other than an interview at a major market station last year. I agree with what the person before said, everything is out of Atlanta and doesn't seem like the local stations have much say. However, same can be said for...

Re: Eric Church's Comments

All I am saying is people need to watch what they say around Miranda. I feel like she's the type of girl that carries a knife in her boot. Actually her flask she keeps in her boot has a hidden knife compartment. Here's the thing about his comments, they're not 100% wrong. I'm not saying they're 100...

Re: Country Music Marathon

Karen, I'm very supportive of you and all others running. Nothing but love and respect for you! I'm with Dustin though, running and I don't really get along, ha!

Charity softball, basketball, volleyball, beer drinking tournaments are much more my speed.

Re: Country Music Marathon

Y'all have fun with that! Only times I run for an extended period is if I'm being chased by a vicious dog or the dang ice cream truck is a couple blocks ahead of me.

Re: Dick Clark

Staying up late as a kid and watching his New Years Rockin' Eve and wondering why people on the east coast got to party before we did, ha.

He's a guy that had a million stories to tell. He'll be missed.

Re: New artists I should know?

Dustin, as I type this I'm listening to Garth "Friends In Low Places." He doesn't tell you how country he is in this song, he just shows you how bad arse he is by taking that dude's champagne, ha! I like the Ashley Monroe and Kacey Musgraves picks. Been huge fans of both for a while now. Kacey is pr...

Re: New artists I should know?

Matt's pretty good too, I like him. There are some artists that I see on the charts that don't look like they've got staying power, too many of them have very little substance to them. As far as "not your typical country artist" who does dance and urban tracks... yeah, not my style at all. I like fo...

New artists I should know?

So was just on the Greg Bates topic and Jimmy mentions there are a lot of new artists on the rise. Now I've been doing 100% Texas Music for the past 2 years and am getting to know a few of these guys now that I'm PD/MD at KORA in College Station. Who are the ones I might NOT know that I SHOULD know?...
