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. Miranda Lambert | For The Country Record | Page 2

We have a rule at For The Country Record. We don’t gossip or discuss the stars’ personal lives unless it has a profound impact on the music they are making, and therefore requires joint analysis. In this case, however, not only does the divorce of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton impact their own music, but the country music industry as a whole, to the point where immediately following the announcement (yesterday – July 20 – just after 1pm ET) Twitter was abuzz with discussion.

Miranda Lambert ‘Smokin’ and Drinkin’’ – Single Review

Miranda P

Miranda Lambert has released “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” as her latest single from her fifth studio album ‘Platinum’. It was rumored that the song would be her next single after “Somethin’ Bad”, when she performed it on the CMAs with Little Big Town. But, for reasons unknown, “Little Red Wagon” became Miranda’s third single instead. As far as I’m concerned, I think they had it right the first time around. For me, “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” is a cooler weather song, while “Little Red Wagon” would have been a better summer song.

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.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards – Winners! +recap

brandy clark dwight yoakam grammys

It was a night of performances and music celebration that nearly reached the four hour mark just on the main telecast; the pre-telecast, or the “premiere ceremony” as it is now called – lasted for around three hours and the red carpet was active for about six. In all, the academy honoured artists of all shapes, sizes and genres; not least of all country, Americana and roots music, which was much the talk of social media. With early winners (and losers) announced during the premiere ceremony in Best Country Song, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, as well as all of the other folk and roots categories, it was left to the anticipated Best Country Album award to light up the main stage. Still, country had plenty of influence during the show, as Miranda Lambert performed ‘Little Red Wagon’, Eric Church performed ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’, and Brandy Clark shone on the mid-audience stage with Dwight Yoakam on her beautiful ballad ‘Hold My Hand’. Showing up most of the other vocalists on the night, let’s hope that the exposure leads her to the fame and industry standing that she deserves. When it came to the mainstream awards, Sam Smith absolutely cleared up with many touting him as the male Adele (seriously, think about it, how similar?! It’s scary), picking up awards for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and more. Below are all the country and roots winners. Enjoy!
