A Busy Summer For Neil Haislop

Our old buddy, who Blair Garner branded many years ago "The Nashville Answer Man," for his encyclopedic knowledge of country facts, people and trivia after having researched and written for Bob Kingsley for the many years ACC originated from Los Angeles has been producing holiday specials for Dick Clark's company for the last few years.

He just sent us this update for '007:
United Stations and I are changing things up next year offering a sizzling summer of 15 two-hour Country Giants shows, one every weekend between Memorial Day thru Labor Day. The "Future Giants" will cover all star acts like Carrie, Dierks, Gretchen,Sugarland, Trace Adkins, etc. (all folks that have scored multiple hits including #1s.) We will end the year with our annual Heroes and Winners specials, of course. The final list and weekend airing will depend on certain album release dates - such as McGraw's new one, Carrie's, Rascals, Reba's duets album, if Shania springs a new release, etc. she'd be in.
