On the Popularity of Country Music

Numbers talk…bullsh*t walks. And when it comes to music, you either sell out the large arenas or you don’t. You either have an army of fans or you don’t. In this regard, country music is king.

How do we know this? Well, let’s take a look at Las Vegas—the entertainment capital of the world. And more specifically, let’s take a look at the T-Mobile arena. That’s the new stadium, situated right off the strip: i.e. next to the New York, New York Casino and across the street from the MGM. The biggest acts in the world will play there.

The T-Mobile arena is the new “place to be” in Las Vegas: home to a professional hockey team and major performers.

In the last four months, who sold out that arena more than any other artist? Was it The Rolling Stones? Was it Jennifer Lopez? Was it Justin Timberlake? The answer is no to all of them.

The answer is country music star, George Strait.

In the last four months, George Strait has sold out the T-Mobile arena more than any other artist in any genre.

In the last four months, Strait he has sold out the T-Mobile arena a total of six times. That’s more than any artist is any genre. The mainstream media has not covered this trend. That’s because they hate what country music symbolizes: i.e. nationalism, romantic love, family, etc. These values are in opposition to the (((Deep State))). Therefore, country music is a thorn in the side of Schiff and Schumer—a painful reminder that Americans still love simple and beautiful things.

*On a related note, it’s now plausible that the Mandalay Bay shooter was a setup by the Deep State: an attempt to murder a group of conservative concert goers, thus instilling fear into that demographic.

In summary, when it comes to numbers, country music is king. It’s about ticket sales and dollars…and you either sell out the major arenas or you don’t.

The Difference Between a 10 pm Voice and a 7 am Voice

The Difference Between a 10 pm Voice and a 7 am Voice

Good singers fall into two camps: those with a 10 pm voice and those with a 7 am voice.

The 10 pm singer is in tune. When the band changes key, he changes with them. He might apply a bit of vibrato to the end of note for effect. And he knows the words to the song well enough. The audience continues to drink, because his voice is not disjointing or alarming. The final conclusion? He can sing.

The 10 pm singer is good…but not good enough.

The 7 am singer is great…on a recording! On a recording, all the nuances of a person’s voice are captured. If the voice has a glitch, it’s amplified tenfold. A 7 am voice is amazing or it isn’t. It’s legendary or its boring. It gives you goosebumps or it doesn’t. It’s a winner or a loser.

At 7 am, you will know if a singer is fantastic or not.

We have many examples on this point. Take Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia. Hunter had great lyrics and a decent voice…but Garcia had a wonderful voice. Take Dean Del Ray and George Strait; Del Ray has a decent voice, but Strait has a special one. These are but two examples. And from these comparisons there comes an important lesson. If you’re a great songwriter, but an average singer, it’s better to let somebody else sing your songs.

The goal is to be GREAT – not average.
