Over the last six years, I have taken thousands of pictures on my phone. You can see many of my concert photos on the Facebook page for Robert’s Country Blog. Over the weekend, I sorted through some of the photos and made my Country Slideshow.
This is a much more convenient way to see the pictures than digging through the full albums. There are some independent artists who are unfamiliar of most, but also some huge stars and legends.
For the background music, I found public domain audio files for a couple of scratchy old records from over a century ago, William McEwan singing “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” and Bentley Ball singing “Dying Cowboy.”
In other news, Live Nation’s $25 Concert Week begins today. I mostly go to smaller shows, rather than the huge venues, but I enjoyed some very nice deals in years past, back when it was $20.
CMA Fest is just over a month out, and they still have just three acts listed for Sunday at Nissan Stadium and very few older acts at any of the stages, compared to previous years. Are they even trying?
Speaking of the Nashville industry elite and their disregard for long time country fans, the CMHOF inducted its recent class, but as usual, made the ceremony unavailable for country fans to attend or view.
