Larry Rosin Is Right

Sean Ross' annual Edison Research column about the songs that made a difference in the past year includes this semi-serious/semi-joking comment from Edison's President:
Wreckers, "Leave The Pieces" - Twenty years ago when the female singer-songwriter sound was out of favor elsewhere, it was Country that gave Mary Chapin Carpenter and Rosanne Cash a home. So why not Michelle Branch? (Or, for that mater, with Country vying for the Hot AC franchise in many markets, why not Bon Jovi?) As Larry Rosin also notes, "Leave The Pieces" also proved that there was still a need for the Dixie Chicks sound at Country radio--it just had to come from somebody other than the Dixie Chicks.
