I started this blog at the start of the year. The 2017 New Country Showcase is something I’m constantly tinkering with. The hundred songs currently on the list are all songs that are not on the country top 40 charts. Many countries are represented so far – Canada, Sweden, Ireland, UK, Finland, Italy, New Zealand, and Australia. This playlist follows the same basic formula as my Country & Western Music, 2015-2016 200-song sampler. I regularly post video links and assorted content on the Robert’s Country Blog Interactive Facebook page, including hundreds of pictures I’ve taken (Americanafest 2016,SXSW2017, Grand Ole Opry, CMA Fest 2017,etc).
