    Major News Outlet is Interested in the Billboard Chart Petition :)

    BIG NEWS guys. I was just contacted via email about a media opportunity regarding the petition I started about the new Billboard Chart changes. The petition has sort of stalled at just 625 signatures, sadly.

    However, a MAJOR media outlet is interested in interviewing me about it

    I thought I would share the good news. Maybe this will lead to something bigger. I will let you guys know what outlet it is as soon as everything is nailed down

    Anyways, please continue sharing the petition. I know I've been super busy lately with life that I haven't been able to dedicate much time to it, but I plan on continuing it.

    Jason, if this interview does come to pass, please don't make it all about Carrie.

    Of course. I know that. It's never been a Carrie issue. It's always been an industry issue.

    Well, I'll go ahead and say who it is, since the reporter did email me. It's with the New York Times. They're doing a piece on the Billboard issue. Hopefully it turns out to be a full fledged interview. I'll let you guys know

    That's great Jason! Perhaps you know already, but I'll mention this anyway. There are some very knowledgeable chart historians and chart followers over at Pulse and there are a number of nuggets that you can mine here for your interview:

    Pulse Music Board - New Billboard Chart Methodology

    The posts are quite focused on methodology and not so much on artists.

    Good luck!

    On "Saving Country Music", a poster (I think her name was "Susan") made what I consider a key point. She said that the inclusion of streaming and downloads (which most people support, as realistic in today's market) already tilts the data towards the younger audience (who, as Bill Werde said, can't be individually identified as Country, or General Music fans). Hence, given that built-in re-casting of the data, it's both unnecessary and undesirable to tilt it further in that direction by including the Pop airplay data as well. Without that, the new data would be a reasonable reflection of developing trends - but, with it, it risks becoming separated from the genre demand (I'm paraphrasing her point - but you can check the original post if you're interested)

    That strikes me as an additional line to the points already discussed - and might be worth considering.

    But it's exciting news that you've been asked to give an interview, Jason - congratulations!

    You can stream Farawayhills?! I searched Spotify and didn't find her. Is she there under another name? Farawayhills have you been holding out on us? Commas are important.

    Punctuation, spelliing, math.... not my strong points. However gender association... Farawayhills - he.

    Yes, I'm a he - but, no, any streaming featuring my stellar vocals would be rather difficult to track down - as they've unaccountably been rejected by all known sites as a waste of bandwidth and a blatant risk to their listeners' sanity (The CMA voters snubbed me too!)
