Someone told me last week that there are currently almost 40 different "record" labels promoting songs and artists to radio right now from Nashville, even as the usual suspects appear to dominate the monitored charts week after week.
These are just a few I heard from recently - above and beyond the usual list of majors and major indies.
I feel for them, working hard to stand out from a very noisy crowd.
In spite of the difficult economy, it sure looks like there are still hopeful people with money in their pockets coming to Music City, pursuing their dreams.
