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. Thomas Rhett | For The Country Record | Page 2

Thomas Rhett ‘Die A Happy Man’ – Single Review

artworks-000114474757-95h85c-t500x500

Sometimes artists’ teams are just smart. When presented with a potentially polarizing, musical melting pot of an album (including plenty of bro-country signifiers), Thomas Rhett’s people chose the catchy, soulful, tongue-in-cheek ‘Crash and Burn’ as the record’s lead single, and followed it up with the most meaningful and most country song on the album. How’s that for (mostly) appeasing the critics (and fans)? Ultimately, of course, the likes of ‘Vacation’ and ‘South Side’ are probably going to make it to radio, but for now, I can feel positive in the fact that one of bro-country’s biggest stars is sending a good song to the airwaves.

Thomas Rhett ‘Tangled Up’ – Album Review

thomas-rhett-tangled-up-album-cover

I’m going to admit, I haven’t heard any of Thomas Rhett’s first album apart from his great song ‘Beer With Jesus’. However, I was a big fan of the lead single from this project ‘Crash & Burn’, and was impressed by his live performance when I went to the Opry, and so I went into ‘Tangled Up’ with an open mind. Besides, I’m not the kind of country fan who automatically dismisses anything that doesn’t sound like it’s come from the mouth of Merle, so I dived into ‘Tangled Up’ hoping to hear some good songs, whilst also not expecting anything particularly country.

Billboard Chart Roundup – Week of September 26th, 2015

thomas rhett crash and burn

We have a new radio #1 this week in the form of Thomas Rhett, whose ‘Crash And Burn’ leads ahead of the release of album ‘Tangled Up’ on September 25. Pre-release track ‘T-Shirt’ also charts on the digital side of things, while his tour mate Brett Eldredge’s own instant grant ‘Wanna Be That Song’ makes a similar appearance. Still, both are no match for Sam Hunt, whose ‘House Party’ is killing at Hot Country Songs and Country Streaming Songs still, while new single ‘Break Up In A Small Town’ makes it way up. Elsewhere, Luke Bryan’s ‘Strip It Down’ continues to lead Country Digital Songs, while ‘Kill The Lights’ adds to its 5-week consecutive run at the top of Top Country Albums. New entries include Dylan Scott’s ‘Crazy Over Me’ and Mo Pitney’s ‘Boy And A Girl Thing’. Read on for the full charts!
