I thought that a lot of us really don't get to see a lot of the shows on CMT and me especially has really knocked it because they don't do just everything I think they should.................Like 24/7 Vince Gill.
I checked into the web site to vote on Vince's videos ( couldn't find that,must be over) but I found a wealth of entertainment on CMT Loaded. Got to see Sara and Tony dance which I had not seen any of the Dancing With The Stars Show. A.J. talking about his new CD ,Marty Stuart telling about Johnny Cash carving on Marty's favorite mandolin
There are several of Vince's videos there too.
Not a bad place to go for lots of vides and information. Cool site
I'm not one to boast about CMT either, but have noticed a great improvement in their website tho. One of my coworkers is a recent country music fan and he's learned alot from CMT and he has shared some of the knowledge with me, and I didn't know either. It's doing much better than a few years ago. I used to post on the message boards over there and they were plain rude about Vince and I just couldn't stand that they were badmouthing artists over their for no good reason. Any time you tried to post a positive or a good story or deed, it was slammed back with tons of negative postings. Needless to say, part of the reason I came here, where there are wonderful Vince fans. He's lucky he's got great fans here. I tried all I could do to tone down those posts and to quiet them, but no go.
I'm happy to see the website looking the way it is, and the programming slowly improving. It took them a long time to change, but am seeing lots of programming changes. I think with GAC in their competition they realized they had to do something. I have not been to the website message boards since. But happy to see improvements.
Love the listening parties CMT website has and the crossroads program when they had Randy Travis and Josh Turner on. That is what we need to see more of from CMT and of course more Vince!
Anyway, off my soap box.
