    That sucks =( So is Canada no longer going to have country charts again like in 2000-2004 when RPM went away?

    It’s Uncle Earl, not “Earle.” Just thought you’d like to know.

    Darn, the R&R weekly country singles chart was my favorite way to keep track of the few singles I liked at any given time. Oh well…

    I really like the new Megan Mullins video, and the song’s not half bad either! (lol) It would have been nice if she could have taken the Lamborghini for a drive down PCH.

    Does anyone really doubt that John Rich is an arrogant a**hole? I think his buddy’s last name should be “Quisling” for defending the indefensible.

    I wish Hank III would issue his country albums under that name and Assjack albums for this punk persona and not mix them together. Combining the two is like the musical equivalent of mixing neo-nazis with the Obama administration…

    WSM Alert! Tonight Eddie Stubbs will have Marty Stuart as a guest co-host and Marty will be picking the tunes he wants to spin. Marty will also be promoting his annual “Late Night Jam” a week from Thursday during Fan Fair which includes acts from the Cherryholmes family to Canada’s Corb Lund and his Hurtin’ Albertans. I wish WSM would broadcast that show live!!!!!

    JR: “..pompous and arrogant and completely out of line, like nobody else’s rules pertain to him”

    Sounds like a career in the NFL would be in the cards if he wasn’t such a ‘little man’

    I was never too interested in the Radio & Records publication, myself. I like to follow the Billboard charts.

    Country Aircheck will still keep you updated, Rick. You can subscribe for free.

    Thanks J.R.! I appreciate the information.

    “Bluegrass Underground” this coming Saturday will feature both Cherryholmes and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper in the subterranean cavern in McMinnville, TN and tickets are only $ 15! It starts at 2 PM Nashville time. Is this broadcast live on WSM? WSM’s new website is so lacking in useful information these days I can’t tell. I wish they archive all the shows for later listening.

    @Michael: R&R showed the Billboard Country chart on it, in addition to their charts as well

    Thanks, Nicolas. I actually didn’t know that. When I went to check out R&R’s site this afternoon it had already been shut down.

    Is the link to download the Robbie Fulks, Etc Intrepid Fallen Heros album. Looks like a 10.00 minimum.

    More specifically, the Billboard country chart WAS the Radio & Records country chart, and vice versa. Almost all charts in other genres were the exact same as well.
