Ten years ago, in the dog days of Summer 2004, blogging was catching on in the political world. I thought it would be cool to do a country music and politics blog. I think it had the tagline of “Where Music Row meets Pennsylvania Avenue.”
Anyway, the politics was dropped pretty quickly, as writing about country music was more than enough ground to cover! Country Universe slowly built an audience, becoming a place for refugee fans from the nineties boom, to debate the latest singles and albums, and at our best, to write about the present in a way that is informed by the past.
