Carol Lynn is a DJ on WQAH, Addison / Hartselle / Huntsville Alabama. A life-long friend of traditional county music, Gospel, and bluegrass, Carol Lynn is a consummate professional. Skilled and accomplished in every aspect of broadcasting, this is a partial playlist from her show on the afternoon of April 8, 2010.
Radio Acadien on Live365 plays country music from Quebec, almost all of which is in French. The music is good country music. Fiddles, dobros, steel guitar, and great lyrics appeal to country music fans. While the sound is a little different from what you hear from Jimmy C. Newman and Jo-el Sonnier, it probably isn’t much different from what you truly hear in the Bayous of Louisiana.
There are many choices for country music listeners. At The Country Classics we are not limited to music by the legends of country music. We like to feature traditionalists, both young and not so young. My main concern is the ability to keep the music alive. Texas seems to be the place for honky tonk, with new songs and great cover songs. However, as I research musicians, and their songs, I can confirm that Nashville is alive and well. The key is in the promotion.
As I was writing a new song called “On The Road Tonight” I was thinking back to my days in North Alabama. Since the refrain goes something like “on the road tonight, just my old friends and me”, it seems natural to remember people who put on smile on my face long ago.
