Re: Dixie Chicks/Keith Urban/Eagles

To me, there is a difference between playing the Dixie Chisk and playing the Couryard Hounds. The name "Dixie Chicks" has the negative connotation. Most people associate the negativeness of the Dixie Chicks to Natalie. If I were an MD right now, I'd have no problem at all playing the Courtyard Hounds.

Re: Dixie Chicks/Keith Urban/Eagles

I am very interested to see how the Dixie Chicks are recieved on this tour. Are there any country stations that are playing the Dixie Chicks still? I've traveled around the state of Texas and been into Louisiana and haven't heard any Chicks songs since their... incident. Obviously Texas is a Bush ma...

Re: Okay, who is hiring?

Not like the old days! Which is too bad because we need more young people working Country radio. But how do they even get in now? I remember starting out and doing weekends and night fil-in work part time. Now though, hardly anyone does part-time radio. Some of the successful radio stations I see t...

Okay, who is hiring?

Are there any stations out there getting back to doing old school radio and actually hiring people instead of letting them go? It seems that for every "hired" article that is posted, there are 3 articles about people parting ways with their employeer. Will radio ever get back to having more than jus...

Re: KPMZ

Dallas has some good country stations already. Is there anything that they are just missing out on or maybe something that could use some competition?

Re: ACM nominations

My votes for Top New ACM's goes to: Luke Bryan Bomshel Eli Young Band I'm sure that Jamey Johnson is going to run away with the Top new solo, but I'm much more of a fan of Luke Bryan's stuff personally. None of the duo's just blow me away at all. Bomshel takes it for me because I enjoy the song "Fig...

Re: Carrie Underwood

Did anyone see Carrie on "How I Met Your Mother"? I missed it and was wondering how her acting chops were. I know she's going to be in her first major movie this year. I am interested to see how she does on screen. I love "How I Met Your Mother" and I think that Carrie did as well as a guest star a...

Re: Jonas Brothers

I agree Blocklo. Kind of like if Marilyn Manson covered Brooks & Dunn. He would just be doing a complete mockery of the music.
