No Matter What Metric You Choose, Country Radio Is BIG And HOT

Radio Ink's Ed Ryan asks:   Over the past year has Country music improved, declined or stayed the same and why?

The image of country's music and artists is better than ever.  We now have an entirely new generation of superstars compared to just three or four years ago, which is very exciting.

However, as always happens when the door opens for new music, clones and soundalikes are also proliferating so right now there are another 15-20 artists whose songs seem to be stuck on spin charts in the high 20s and 30s, as radio as usual can only make room for so many at a time.

As a result, the difference in listener research on the best of the best compared to the "average" is greater than ever right now.
