Nope, I didn’t even watch it (even though I said I was gonna!). I did watch snippets from it. And here’s the bottom line … an amazing artist who has been busting his ass for many years in the scene has finally been “discovered” … of course, I’m talking about Chris Stapleton! He’s awesome and it’s GREAT that he’s being recognized.
The real questions are … how long will it take Nashville record labels to start changing the way the music is produced to sound … you know Country … like Chris’? Or will they try to “change” him and his sound?
I’m pretty sure the latter won’t happen if Chris is the type of person I think he is.
Any bets if the former happens however? Which current Nashville act do you think will make the next “COUNTRY” album?
OR could this be the turning point we’ve all been waiting for? Will more of our amazing artists in the Texas/Red Dirt music scene finally get the recognition they deserve? THIS is what I am hoping for!
