Re: Am I the Only one who doesn't get Bobby Bones???

Bobby's show is what it is. He does a good job with it. My problem with him and the show is that neither he nor the music he's playing is country. It's just more of the same pop country stuff.

Re: Hot Songs Countdown

We don't do the classic Top 40 country format. My rotation for the Hot songs are only once every 4 hours. Once a shift. I also stay away from the too pop, too rap sounding country. We play a lot more Indy/Texas/Red Dirt artists which is why we came up with this feature to give these artists a spotli...

Local countdown show

I recently started a Hot 6 at 6 request type countdown. This is the first time I've done a segment like this, can anyone give me any advice? Since it's the hot songs, they are still coming up in their regular slots throughout the day, but to me, it'd sound weird if we played one of the songs at 5, w...

Re: Splitting up Country Music into seperate genres

I listened to Top 40 and rock in the mid-late 90's because of Shania and Faith Hill. By that time it had already started getting more crossover, but there was still a segment of real country music at that time. I believe that there are still people out there who want to hear country music and not ju...

Splitting up Country Music into seperate genres

I think after last night's CMT Awards is a great time to bring up the discussion of creating a new branch of country music. All of this pop/rap/country that's become increasingly popular (because it's basically just pop music) needs to be its own genre. 85% of what was on that show last night didn't...
