When I first talked with Larry Massey it seemed like a normal conversation between friends of traditional country music. I knew Larry was an artist, and he simply said “I have a CD that’s getting some air-play in Dallas and Tyler Texas, Kentucky, Florida, and Sweden.” Then Larry Massey told me he has worked for the Postal Service for almost twenty-eight years, and said “It’s never been about the money. I just want people to hear my CD and hopefully like it.”
Every now and then we receive a CD that is new and fresh, and each song is written by the artist. Like a breath of fresh air, “Runnin’ With The Horses” is one such CD. From the first song titled “Box Of Memories” it is clear that Vela has a strong beautiful voice, and is dedicated to traditional country music.

Hack Martin has great music for you at his Myspace website. He said “I am definitely a Country Classic. In fact that was the name of one one of my bands back in the late 60′s and early 70′s. Oddly enough, my music is more popular these days in countries like New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, etc. than it is here in the U.S.” Visit his band website and enjoy some great country music.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Levi Coby today, a songwriter based in Scotland. In the office, and on Facebook, a bunch of us were just talking about traditional country music in other countries, so it was a perfect time to hear from this talented singer and songwriter.
From the desk of Ritchie Ritchison: I am a traditional country songwriter. My style is basically twang x humor. I write very straight country music with humorous lyrics.
