I love hearing about new talent. I have been delighted to have others tell me about someone that I likely would have not heard about if it were not for word of mouth. I never under estimate the power of this, with so many being unfulfilled with the content of radio and other traditional media to adequately achieve this.
For those that are not aware of the the (now) highly successful blues rock artist, Joe Bonamassa, his fame and success was largely word of mouth. He continues to sustain high sales in his music and concert attendance and he has never had a "hit" on the radio, nor any air play period, that I am aware of.
Another FC member from Germany that I will be attending the FC advised me of this brilliantly talented woman, Taria Long. She sings several nights at The Whiskey Bent in Nashville. Shame on the industry for not having discovered her yet. Looking forward to seeing her on 6/5. Man, oh man, will that ever be a musical ear and heartfelt day. VG's FC party, Taria, then Marty Stuart's Late Night jam. Yo Vinnie, that had better be a better hot dog than last year at the FC party, cuz, lol, I have to pencil in eating dinner! J/K.
Taria LIGHTS up a room with her engaging personality too. If any fan club members can spare an hour or so on 6/5, I promise you won't be disappointed.
From Florida, this awesome country band, McKinley and Beggs. They keep it real and I love that and their whole style too, its like VG, very non pretentious.
Wish I could have made it to the show they had in central Fl. where they were among the headliner for The Judds last year.
Delighted to say that I learned about this country duo, hailing all the way form Scotland, "Raintown." I had the pleasure of meeting them last year at the International Artists Showcase show during CMA fest. I highly recommend this event to any country fan, there is so much awesome music going on, country style outside of the US.
