Country music is booming. Mainstream pop has evolved to be inclusive of many more musical influences, while country has expanded outside of its traditional ‘cultural identification’ to wider audiences. And the genres popularity has only grown during the pandemic. While the overall industry has risen only 2.6% on streaming services compared with its baseline pre-COVID numbers, country music has soared 15.8%. Not Your Grandparents Country Music Business focuses on how and why the genre is so hot and how artists can go from green Indies to solid gold hit makers. Join Country radio host Leeanne Whitehouse, Country 104 FM and this power panel as they discuss what it takes to develop artists, record new tracks and land them at the top of the genre.
