    Saving Country Music: Billboard Country Chart Rules Boosts Crossover Songs

    Billboard Changes Country Chart Rules, Boosts “Crossover” Songs Saving Country Music

    This morning the country music world was turned on its head when Billboard, the longest-running and most respected publisher of music charts, decided it was making sweeping changes to the way singles are judged in country. The most obvious result of the new format was 3 Taylor Swift songs hopscotching dozens of others to claim the #1, #2, and #10 spots in the country chart respectively, when before her highest-charting single was mired in the teens.

    Billboard is owned by CLEAR CHANNEL. The CEOs of Clear Channel and Big Machine had A DEAL before, which was posted on one the threads on this site. Clear Channel is IN DIRE NEED OF REVENUE. Otherwise, only a slight SHOCK, Clear Channel will be pushed into BANKRUPTCY!!! The RATIO of the DEBT to its REVENUE is so high that they WILL DO ANYTHING TO HAVE "EXTRA REVENUE" from Big Machine. MONEY talks!!! WTF!!! This is a CONSPIRACY between the CEO of Clear Channel and the CEO of Big Machine. I HOPE this BACKFIRES, and FLIES OVER THEIR FACES. The GREAT THING is - "Carrie Underwood" is a PREMIER ARTIST and "ONE" of "THE BEST OF THE BEST" in the music industry - widely admired by LEGENDS, ICONS and PREMIER ARTISTS ALIKE - who aspires to create SOMETHING BIGGER, SOMETHING OUTSTANDING and SOMETHING MORE LASTING than herself - an ONGOING ARTIST that STANDS THE TEST OF TIME and rooted her LIFE and CAREER in a set of timeless CORE VALUES - that Carrie exists for A PURPOSE, BEYOND JUST MAKING MONEY. Carrie is ABOUT SOMETHING that is WORTHY OF LASTING - something FAR MORE IMPORTANT, "ENDURING and SUBSTANTIAL"!!! She is "ONE" of the CROWN JEWELS in the music industry. She is MORE THAN SUCCESSFUL!!! She is MORE THAN ENDURING!!! She is a FUTURE "ICON"!!!

    Great post! Carrie is a TRUE AMBASSADOR of country music and LOVE country music and country radios with ALL HER heart, with all her soul and with all her mind. Let THEIR CONSPIRACY rules!
    It will not affect Carrie as BEING "ONE" of "THE BEST OF THE BEST" in music industry. I am VERY EXCITED about "THE BEST OF THE BEST" CHEMISTRY of "CARRIE and BRAD" in co-hosting the CMA Awards this coming NOVEMBER 01, 2012. They are the two of the ROLE MODELS of the country music industry! Go Carrie and Brad!
