Come On Girls!
Friday, October 21 2016 @ 09:17 PM CDT

There are women right here in town who can better this corporate babe. Come on girls! Look what they gotta do to sell number one! Be encouraged!

This link, and a little consideration of the ongoing music marketing discussion some of us have been trying to have here over the last five years or so, might lead to the conclusion everything is not roses in the business.

All those downloads, and all those product tie-ins were scheduled to save the BIG part of the industry.
How long before regional/local Christian music outsells BIG?
If Lady G fails to score number ones and leaves Interscope's high powered marketing without commercial success on this latest effort... why, the buzzards might come out...

There is a lot at stake in a lot of places these days. BIG country is still selling though Wink

Here's an industry update on sales and marketing of BIG kingpin Gaga's latest.
See those shadows on the ground? Only 47% of last time out
with sales priced at a friendly $3.99. No hits yet. No buzz. Maybe buzzards...
