If your a disgruntled fan, call and then call again. Example, to get Joe Buck more exposure and maybe a song on the charts, might have to get an act like Jamey Johnson to 1 several times. I am not trying to start shit. It is essential to get things done. I am not a huge Jamey Johnson fan.
I would love to use another example of an artist that straddles pop country radio play and is traditional country sound. But I do recognize that he is making music that sounds closer to traditional country than Rascal Flatts.
I do believe in the country music Messiah. If country music is ever saved, it will be because one person punctures through all the bullshit, someone that has mass appeal, while still being true to the roots.
A Taylor Swift with twang. Maybe Jamey will be the guy, or maybe Jamey in combination with some other artists. But Jamey just comes across to me as way too reserved to ignite anything. IceColdCountry January 15, am. He is not outspoken enough offstage. I hate to use Jamey as the only example, but he is the only one I can think of that is in the mainstream, yet, has a sound that traditional country is looking for.
Something like that. It is a double edge sword to a fan base like this site has. The Triggerman January 15, pm. Yes, Saving Country Music IS a living thing we are all a part of, but I think we need one person that can help carry that message to the masses.
And yes, I think Leroy is a good candidate. Stubblejumper January 15, pm. Jkalnasy January 14, pm. My prediction is that after the mono-genre transformation is complete, people will eventually begin noticing talent in individual bands.
Those that once longed for pure musical talent will be the ones that are responsible for keeping these bands popular, and eventually everything will come full circle again. It acts as a musical cleansing of sorts. Is it bad? Certainly, especially for starving talent that should be noticed over the over-produced, auto-tuned pop artists that flood the airwaves these days.
That which requires not only talent, but vision and heart. Maybe one day in the distant future, some kid will go rummaging through family storage and happen across a Legendary Shack Shakers CD or a Hank Williams vinyl and discover once again what music is. The difference is the mono-genre fan is not willing to be active in their music experience, seeking out new artists, and then helping to support them once they find them. The micro-genre fan IS. The difference is just as much in the fans as anything.
I also thought of something while reading your comment: race used to be much easier defined in society.
Now our president is half this, half that. As time goes on, diversity and clearly-defined races become more obscure as the population becomes more mixed. The difference is in race, this hopefully will cause more acceptance and less racism. With music, it causes less diversity, which leads to less variety, hypothetically a bad thing.
You can look at the race lines being erased and bring artists like hiphop and country together generally seen as black and white as adding more creativity and variety. Not even styles of music. But they will adapt when needed, and genres will blossom again. Outlaw January 14, pm. Damnit, We should done have the flying car! July 22, Retrieved July 31, CD Universe.
