GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. Brandy Clark | For The Country Record

Dave Cobb ‘Southern Family’– Album Review

southern fam

Probably the most anticipated, talked about record of 2016 is ACM producer of the year, Dave Cobb’s concept record, Southern Family. Featuring some of the biggest artists in Country AND Americana, including Miranda Lambert, Brandy Clark, Jason Isbell, Morgane Stapleton (with Chris Stapleton), and Holly Williams, the record was expected to be a heavy hitter. I admit, that it was on my personal list of most anticipated records for this year and one that I thought for sure would top my Best Albums of 2016 (even though it’s only March, I was THAT confident). Being able to listen to Miranda’s “Sweet By and By”, John Paul White’s “Simple Song”, Anderson East’s “Learning”, Morgane Stapleton’s “You Are My Sunshine”, and Zac Brown’s “Grandma’s Garden” ahead of the album’s release only heightened my anticipation. So when the record was finally released, I immediately delved into it.

Warner Bros. recording artist Brandy Clark launches the music video for her hot new single “Girl Next Door” with a storyline that exactly portrays the song’s message. A Stepford wife marionette brings to life the stylized imagery Clark paints with her lyrics. “I loved working with Tracie Goudie and Shane Tarleton on the video for ‘Girl Next Door.’ This song is about someone wanting you for one thing, and then wishing you were completely different. Their vision was exactly what the song needed and I’m really excited to get to share it with everyone,” said Clark. The video is now available on CMT, BrandyClark.CMT.com and all of their digital platforms in an unprecedented amount of support for Clark who is the first artist to be twice honored as a CMT Listen Up Artist.

Once again the Country Albums chart leader is compilation record ‘The Country Album’, with other greatest hits collections filling up the chart. From Shania Twain’s ‘Greatest Hits’ at #10, ‘The Legend of Johnny Cash’ at #11, and ‘Country – 101 All-Time Greats’ at #12, to Jim Reeves’ ‘120 Greatest Hits – The Very Best of’ at #15, ‘The Very Best of Dolly Parton’ at #16, and John Denver’s ‘The Ultimate Collection’ at #19, clearly fans are lapping this stuff up. What’s more, ‘Glen Campbell’s 20 Golden Greats’ occupies #22, and ‘The Essential Kris Kristofferson’ moves up to #23. Elsewhere, Lucinda Williams’ brand new album ‘The Ghosts of Highway 20’ delivers an impressive #2 spot, followed by Shania Twain’s Come On Over’ at #3 and Sam Hunt’s ‘Montevallo’ at #4.

Hall of Fangirl – July 2015

kacey shane luke

With a new month comes a new Hall of Fangirl (wait a second; how did it get to July already?!), and as usual we’re spotlighting a few songwriters featured on a major country album release recently. Although we’ve featured most of these songwriters before, I thought it was time to talk about those who contributed to Kacey Musgraves’ brilliant sophomore album ‘Pageant Material’, and how they’ve made Kacey’s music what it is.

Dear Country Radio: Is Lettuce Really The Best Part Of A Salad Anyway?

I read an article in Country Aircheck last night, where prominent radio consultant Keith Hill advises his clients (aka radio stations) not only to not play female artists back-to-back, but to even further lower the amount they play female artists at all. For those of you who don’t listen to country radio or pay attention to the charts, let me tell you the amount they play female artists is already criminally low. In fact, in 2014 only 18% of the top 100 songs were female-voiced. Hill argues that playing too many female artists will result in lower ratings. As you can expect, Twitter subsequently blew up, referring to the following quote as #SaladGate.
