    Hi there,

    As a fellow liberal country music fan who seems to like the genre for all the same reasons Kevin does, I’m so grateful that I accidentally stumbled on this blog last year.

    But I was wondering, is there a way to sign for an RSS feed for this site? I’ve been searching up and down and can’t find the RSS link.

    Thank you for the site, and keep up the good work.

    Rgds, Aarti

  2. i would like to know who has the most #1 hits. i say george strait and my daughter-in-law says its someone else. could you please tell who it is. thanks, joe kobriger, pineville ky

  3. It’s George Strait.

  4. AS,

    I have no idea how to add an RSS feed link, though it sounds like something I should do. Any tips?

  5. As far as I know, subscribing to any of these will work:

    http://countryuniverse.net/rss
    http://countryuniverse.net/feed

    http://countryuniverse.wordpress.com/rss
    http://countryuniverse.wordpress.com/feed

    I’ll double check with Brady though, he knows more about that than me.

    Kevin,

    Please take a secong to check out my new site, inspired by yours, that I’ve just launched. Its a work in progress, and will be evolving over the next few weeks, so please note that its just a draft at this point. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Great, just give me a link so I can do so!

  8. Hi. I’d love to see some coverage of the John Rich comments comparing unsavory homosexuality to incest. Then later backtracking. I don’t think you’ve covered it. I checked a few other blogs and don’t see it either. If a liberal act like the Dixie Chicks say something, they get banned. But if a ultra right winger like John Rich says something, it seems the country music community won’t criticize it. I’d love to hear some good dialouge on this from your blog or others.

  9. Would like to exchange links..if possible.

    Thanks,
    Grant

    Hey Kevin,

    This is my new favorite passtime. I love this site, because I love to talk about country music. Keep up the great work. I’m sorry for overrunning the site with my back comments, but I couldn’t resist. This is way too much fun.:)

    I’m hoping that you can help me with locating the singer of a song called “TYLER”. It came out between 1994 to 1996, but I can’t for the life of me remember who sang it. I do remember that at the end of the song, he (not sure who) sayes “I love you Tyler”, and the little boy replys, “I love you too, Daddy”. I’m hoping that you can help me with this, as it is driving me nuts…..

    Thanks,
    Anna Fausnaugh

  12. Leeann,

    Love the comments! Keep them coming. I’m glad you enjoy the site!

    Anna,

    The artist of the song “Tyler” was Davis Daniel. It’s from his self-titled 1994 album. You can get the CD at the Amazon Marketplace for 41 cents!

  13. Kevin, I’d love your take on Rhonda Vincent’s new album, especially her duet with Keith Urban on “The Water is Wide.”. It’s my current favorite song.

  14. great site enjoy reading it have a lot of good reviews

  15. Hi Kevin,

    Just heard Crystal Shawanda’s “You Can Let Go” on the radio here in Atlanta…what a great song. Anyway, that led me to your site when I did a search on Crystal. I’m an aspiring artist as well and am looking for some folks to review my music. I have three recorded so far and would love to have you or your team write a review. The songs are: Wild Horses, Too Long Gone, and Small Town USA…all are original. Thanks in advance for having a look! Scotty

  16. yeah so I’m wondering if you can give me any tips on how to start a blog. I started one back in october but had to abandon it for various reasons. I logged back in today to try to restart it. If you could tell me anything that would be great, (like how to put links up in the sidebar). Thanks in advance.

    Ps. love the blog, I check it everyday for updates.

  17. Never mind about the links I’ve figured it out.

  18. Kevin, I’m looking forward to hearing your take on the new George Strait and Kathy Mattea albums. My girl Patty Loveless appears on both including a wonderful duet with George on “House of Cash.”

  19. Tom

    the “100 greatest women” countdown is a mighty fine effort. lots of info, well summarised. since i read the melba montgomery summary i finally know who sang “no charge”. congratulations and many thanks.

    just out of curiosity: what are the criteria for the ranking? – if it’s at all supposed to be a ranking.

  20. Roger,

    I haven’t had a chance to review those albums yet, but I will soon. I love the Mattea album, the Strait is decent. Obviously, Patty anywhere is always a good thing!

    Tom,
    Thanks for the feedback. I’m enjoying revealing the list, and I’m glad people are enjoying it as well.

    There’s an introduction post that you can find on the 100 Greatest Women page that explains the criteria somewhat, but I guess it’s kind of vague. Basically it’s a melting pot of commercial and critical success, long-lasting impact and influence, and overall quality. It’s somewhat subjective, but I think it will all make a logical sense once the whole list is revealed, even though nobody could ever exactly agree with the rankings. It’s an impossibility with lists like these! My main goal is to tell the story of women in country music as a whole by talking about them individually, so hopefully those themes are being picked up on as the series progresses.

  21. Tom

    kevin,

    thanks for your answer. bringing quality aspects into play is a sure way to stirr up a debate. however, it’s one of the beauties of such lists that disagreeing is as much fun as agreeing.

    i’m already looking forward to the reactions when the list enters the top-ten phase – even more so, since i saw the wave of feedback related to kenny chesney’s head-injury in concert.

  22. Libby

    I don’t post, but I am reading, enjoying and learning a lot from your 100 Greatest Women series. Thank you.

  23. Marc

    Get the RSS back. WordPress has it built in. When you customized the site you deleted it. You just need a link called “RSS Feed” pointed at “http://countryuniverse.net/rss”

  24. Helen

    Kevin

    Just wanted to post a comment to congratulate you on this wonderful and very insightful site. I only found out about it from a DCX fan site when you placed them in the 100 Greatest Women list (Great job by the way!)

    Since then, I still haven’t got through reading all of the details on each of the 100 women you posted about but I’m getting there. I’ve also been reading album reviews and such. I’m really enjoying it and I’ll definitely keep coming back. You really put a lot of thought into everything you post.

    Hopefully you’ll have another DCX album to review in the not too distant future! Also, rumour has it the three ladies recorded a song for a film…so at least that’s something to look forward to….

  25. I like Country Universe, I guess. Whatever. :)

  26. Hey. New site design, new team member, full names… it’s looking pretty sharp around here! Keep up the great work, guys.

  27. Tim L.

    Hello
    I was reading the post “Country Convert Song”
    and trying to remember the that got me
    “hooked” .And i realize it was a country song in spanish!
    Could you write about country in other countries?
    I only know about the mexican duo “Ha*ash”
    (though they’re not really mexicans xD!)
    and their song ‘Vaquera’ and maybe ‘already home’

    Thanks a lot!

  28. Aaron

    Hey Guys!

    So I was never a ‘blog’ type person, meaning I never read or wrote blogs but now I’m actually inspired to start my own blog about country music! I feel like I know quite a bit about the genre and it would be a dream come true to have a career involving the busines of country music.

    You guys are doing an amazing job! Keep up the great work and I love reading!!

  29. Hello!

    Please check out my new country album. You can hear samples of all 9 songs at:

    http://www.brandnewcountrymusic.com

    Please let me know what you think. I am always interested in what other people have to say about my music.

    Thank you!

  30. To Leeann: Your post on the Country California blog about Shania’s icon status – I effin’ love it. I think I peed a little even …

  31. Leeann Ward

    Hey Aaron,
    We’re really glad you enjoy the site. Good luck with your blog and your business endeavors regarding country music.

    JR,
    Glad you liked my comment over there.:)

    I need help- I’ve looked all over the web and I can’t find what I’m looking for. I saw a music video a few years back (with in the last 10 years, I’m sure) with Dolly Parton and singing a duet with a guy in a bar. The guy had long black hair and he was playing a guitar. I was wondering what the name of the song was and who “the guy” was. If anyone could help that would be great.

  33. Wilma Lee Cooper was just inducted into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame – just an FYI. Thanks.
