As many of you know, here at The Country Classics we’ve been working on three video collections. Let me tell you about Vodpod, the video service we use. Yesterday, February 11, 2010, the 750,000th member registered at Vodpod. When I first visited the site, my goal was to build a video library of classic country music and traditional country music.
George Jones gave his opinions and thoughts about country music recently. Here is a part of what George Jones said in an article by Jeff Thomas from Mercury News wire reports:
On January 2009 the website “This Is Texas Music” (ThisIsTexasMusic.com) said goodbye. It is often difficult to say goodbye to any venue. In his final article Patrick said “I created this site in early 2004 as a way to help spread the word about Texas music and musicians, and also to give myself an outlet for creative writing. Over these last five years, I’ve greatly enjoyed the opportunity to learn about exciting artists, make new friends, and of course listen to lots of great music.”
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.
